Were they real iMacs or those aggravating IKEA cardboard cutouts that you grab and stash in the bottom of the cart and wonder why security doesn't stop you on the way ou-----oops.......Said too much....

I've seen them at IKEA in Australia and they are real iMacs... just minus everything but the plastic casing.

I was at the IKEA in Burbank, California last month and there were tons of stripped iMacs throughout the store. There were a couple of old LC type boxes also, but it was 99.9% iMacs. The iMacs were basically nothing more than a real iMac plastic shell.

I have also seen iMacs used alot in Australian catalogues for IKEA.

They look good, so why not.

IKEA stores in the UK have been using dummy iMacs in their room settings for quite a while now. The ones in the Edinburgh branch are a genuine iMac shell. I looked a bit closer and saw that they actually have an iMac logic board in them minus all the components. All the holes were drilled and everything! http://forums.macnn.com/cgi-bin/cool.gif

The IKEA I go to in California (City of Industry or in the area, I think) just uses fake plastic PC crap.

They have them at IKEA here in Canada as well. They also have the G4's in the catalogue

I think I've also seen the PowerBooks and G4 Towers in the Ikea catalogue. Initially I thought it may have had something to do with the agency/photographer involved with the catalogue only have Macs on hand but now it seems like it's used by Ikea the world over.

I was looking at a Rev A. Tangerine iMac balanced on one of their computer tables just the other week - wondering if the thing worked http://forums.macnn.com/cgi-bin/wink.gif

iBooks are all over the NY area iKea catalog... I was kind of surprised, then struck with the fact that all the iBooks are posed with women only. odd

The IKEA in Las Vegas didn't have iMacs that I could see, but they had Apple 15" B&W Studio displays everywhere.
