Some fun facts:
1. The power supply was initially larger than the production component (YIKES!)
2. The power supply was brought outside the box to make the design more compact


Here are a few of the proposed designs with the production model sitting square in the middle.

Narrowed down to 4 dashboard choices.

All of the console designs are ass ugly except the third and forth from right and the second to last one. What I want to know is why the third from right is so much smaller than all the rest if those are to scale pictures. My guess is they could make it that small but maybe it caused more heat related problems than the current design.

All the dashboards look pretty nice but the current one is defnitely the most functional looking of the bunch, although the top right one looks fundamentally the same as the real dashboard although it looks a little more current-gen Macish.

I don't really like any of the concept console, but I do quite like the Loop-style Dashboard.
