Well I've seen a lot of CG iMac out there, some are nice and some are horible, so I thought I would try to make a photorealistic one.

Well... its not really photorealistic, but I can't do better, and at least its probably the best looking one so far.

Made with LightWave 7.5 On Mac OS X
Rendering time is about 7 hours on a 400Mhz G4

(makes good desktop picture)

Very nicely done wapangy. Only thing I would change is have LW showing on the screen, hehe.

Nice very ncie.

One of the best ones I've seen. The lighting is actually quite well done. It's not photorealistic, but hey, why does everything have to be photorealistic?

I agree with Willax, Lightwave on the screen is a must! :)

Very cool!
Dont be so modest wapangy,this looks really good.
A tweak here and there in the surface editor and it will be right on the money.
A very clean render!
:D

hey this is a great job, really precise modelling... but for the reflections, I think you could even improve it with a plugin like HyperSmooth.... but hey, this is very peaky from me, .... no really nice lighting... keep posting !

William, tihs one for the gallery !

looks really great.

some critique though:

the clear plexi rim appears to have the same radius at the rounded corners as the white plastic, while it should keep the same thickness.

I'd angle the screen slightly and add a lightbox so it has something to reflect, it looks a bit insubstantial right now.

these 2 changes should turn it into truly photoreal.

good work! :D

Nice and clean - very "advert" based look. Wouldn't look out of place in a magazine.
