Mac G4 raises stink - literally

The Mac G4 has impressive performance – but it stinks.

According to a recent review of the silver-and-gray workstation on the MacInTouch news site, the computer was faulted for emitting an unpleasant odor when turned on.

The reviewer wasn’t alone in noticing the G4’s peculiar aroma: The smelly situation has also been documented by the Apple Tech-info library, and filed under the heading, “Odors May Be Present Short-Term.”

According to Apple, “the odor is detected when the product is new, similar to odors generated from new carpeting or a new car. In most cases the odor will dissipate over a short period of time.”
