Leaked shot of Apple’s Website showing Macbook Touch?

Picture 16.png

Allegedly this is a leaked pre-release shot of Apple’s website featuring the new MacBook Touch tablet device. It looks like the Macbook Touch has iPhone Apps and OS X apps running on the same screen, in which case we’ll be able to use the App Store, and run the best of OS X on the new Macbook Touch. Notice the little tab under the video player, could this be the new “Cocktail” feature that everyone is talking about right now? Time will tell!

    Why the heck wouldn't the “Mac” in the main navigation bar be highlighted? FAKE!

    “Mac” shouldn't be highlighted since it's the main page. But why is the desktop picture in “Watch the TV ad” the Aurora from Leopard? At the same time, the Aurora on MacBook Touch itself is from Snow Leopard. Strange…

    I'm not saying this is real, but the article did say this was the “splash” page for apple.com. Nothing is highlighted in the nav bar for the splash page.

    Fake! Look a the title header “MacBook Touch” and the top edge of the leftmost example. Check this out in Photoshop and you'll see that the alignment is off and the text is skewed. This was faked, no doubt! Apple's website images have always been impeccably accurate and the leftmost image would most likely be perfectly horizontal. :) Also note the wasted real estate beneath the actual screen and surrounding the “home” button. Definitely NOT an Apple tradition.

    Nice try though! I would definitely buy one! :P

    also the osx “cocktail” bar in the macbook touch doesn't have nothing… usually there's finder menu…

    Oh yes… and the capital “T” in Touch??? This is not akin to Apple either. :)

    what about “MacBook Pro”… there is a capital “P”

    The URL on top is “www.apple.com”. The photoshop faker obviously started with a screenshot of whatever current Apple splash page, and changed things from there.

    That's not necessarily an indication of a fake… internal servers can be made to perform like public facing servers, even with proper domains. My institution's internal testing server performs this way on certain machines that are set aside specifically for testing purposes.

    fake! look at the URL. it would have touch at the end or something else like that according to apple's URL convention

  19. Jenkin

    August 20, 2009 at 5:13 pm

    if thats the home page, it could be http://www.apple.com with nothing else after it i think…

  20. critic

    August 20, 2009 at 9:12 pm

    The URL doesn't mean anything… if it's a “splash” page then the URL would be correct. When the iPod touch was released, the “www.apple.com” URL displayed the same way. So again the URL does not point to a fake… but there's plenty of other things that do. :P

    Big wide but empty menu bar? Ummm…. yeah, I believe this one. NOT.

  23. alexisshemale

    August 21, 2009 at 11:27 am

    besides why would it say the web address is http://www.apple.com?

    because we all know that the actual product pages have their own addresses

  24. critic

    August 21, 2009 at 3:17 pm

    … again, the URL means nothing. This is a “splash” page. Apple quite frequently advertises big products on their splash page. If you look at “www.apple.com” right now you will see the iPhone 3GS… clearly the iPhone is not limited to ONLY its' product page. :P

  25. critic

    August 21, 2009 at 3:23 pm

    I'm not defending the image at all… I'm simply saying that the URL is in NO WAY an indication of a fake. ;)

    Why can't any of these photos have favicons?! Oh, javascript.

    Well your first point is explained incredibly simply by the fact that the picture was obviously taken at an angle to the screen haha, of course the alignment is off. But your next point is the same thing i noticed, why would they leave a HUGE chunk of horizontal space empty? I mean it's obviously fake, but that just proves it

  28. Jenkins

    August 22, 2009 at 5:10 pm

    Unless it's space for speakers or the Hard drive or something…? i mean that panel must use up quite a bit of internal real estate right??? so maybe the real brains of the devices are not below the screen but below the 'empty' bit at the bottom? I dunno… just playing devils advocate!

  29. critic

    August 22, 2009 at 8:12 pm

    I realize it's taken at an angle… but it's not just the uneven space, it's the rate at which it is uneven. If the rate were perfect and the image were authentic, then the space would not “appear” even until half way through the image. This space “difference” clearly terminates before the center of the image. :P In Photoshop this occurs all the time when an image is flat facing and then modified to give the appearance of an angle.

    Theoretically if its running OSX wouldn't if have a Finder? I'm with yetanothersteve I don't buy the empty menu bar.

    The menu bar isn't viewable in this image. Look at it again… it's just the browser window and an extremely small portion of the menubar.

  33. Jake Mates

    August 23, 2009 at 11:16 am

    No menu items on the menubar, and the App Store just looks extremely out of place.

    sorry nice fake, this could be close but… it's just that big 'ole honkin' 'Home Button' at the bottom that gives it away for me… I mean you'd have to punch that thing to get home!

    OK people… do you seriously not even know what a mac menu bar looks like or that not everyone's menu bar is the same… in fact many people try to exclude as much as possible from the menu bar leaving it almost completely void of unnecessary icons??? LOL I would say that less than an inch is even visible in this image.

  37. critic

    August 23, 2009 at 7:13 pm

    Agreed! That Home button looks like a big zit! :)

    We are sold as long as it runs Apple Keynote and Microsoft PowerPoint NATIVE presentation files, has video out to connect to videoprojector, has USB to connect the presentation remote, is has light as possible (400 g or so would be great) and is as small as possible (pocketable would be great).

    It is not to work on it, but for the keynote and PowerPoint presentations. Because even the MacBook Air is too heavy, too large and too port-limited.

    We need thousands for our University.
