It is a rare occasion when an icon of its era is so skillfully reinterpreted and distilled into its essence for the modern age, as German tech site Curved/labs has done in this design exercise. Dubbed the Mac 2015, this conceptual design merges the distinctive side profile of Apple‘s original 1984 Macintosh, groundbreaking at the time for introducing a graphical software interface, with the sleek aluminum aesthetics of the modern day iMac and MacBook lines — products that lead the competition today for their covetable designs. The Mac 2015 takes its components from a 2014 MacBook Air, which includes SSD flash memory with 128 GB of built-in storage and 4 or 8 GB of memory available, as well as utilizing the latest i7 chip from Intel, all packaged within the same aluminum as found in the iMac and MacBook computers. Featuring a touchscreen in addition to the standard keyboard and mouse, the computer also comes in gold, space grey and silver. Here’s to hoping that this concept is brought to fruition, if not for nostalgic reasons, then for its personality.
