Wasn't there a white Blackbird proto or something? ISTR a thread about it. Or maybe a 1400. I know there was a mod (iComet) but I recall a proto too.

Once again, it is missing the

Once again, it is missing the speaker grilles.

I like the white color, it's very smooth.

As for white powerbooks, there is a white prototype powerbook 140 here: http://www.applefritter.com/node/334

A white prototype powerbook 170 here: http://www.gete.net/book/dossiers/prototypes/media/produits/white_PowerBook_170.jpg

And a white prototype powerbook duo 2300 here: http://www.gete.net/book/dossiers/prototypes/media/produits/ivory_PowerBook_Duo.jpg

enjoy.

or it could look like this (not a render but a repaint and minor hack)

...your render is beautiful, nice work.

I refute that these are prototypes and merely pre-production plastic moulds before color and texture were added for testing (like the various clear cases used for similar purposes). I have seen no evidence of these things actually showing up anywhere in any kind of production run.

Unlike this particular model which has some pedigree:

If you did get your hands on one of those white testing units, you'd want to equip it with this European keyboard. Clearly they had cleaner fingers than Apple thought Americans did. I'm sure the iBook was less of an impact than it was here.
