Apple didn't sue these guys over the size of their monitors. Pretty much impossible to sue over, anyway. The lawsuit concerned the appearance of the machine, so-called "trade dress". The iMac was a very distinctive computer and the FuturePower box was a direct ripoff of that distinctive appearance.<br><br>At this stage, I doubt Apple cares too much any more. The iMac is due for a "refresh"; in this case it will probably wind up looking completely different. The Flower Power iMac was a dead giveaway. Normally, you don't start seeing anything that goofy until the end of a design cycle.<br><br>John<br><br>
