Free iMac inner view desktop background from OWC

imac27desktopFor those of you who want to let your inner geek show, have we got the desktop background for you!

While we’ve been exploring potential ways to upgrade the hard drive in the new iMacs, our own OWC Jamie took these photos of the new machines with their screens removed to expose the electronic goodness found inside.  They make quite unique desktop pictures.

Or, you could use this as a static screensaver to discourage others from using your precious computer making them think your machine is down for maintenance.

The desktops are custom sized to the resolutions of the respective monitors:

21.5″ iMac   : 1920 x 1080

27″ iMac      : 2560 x 1440

To download, right-click on the links above and Choose “Save Linked File”

To install your desktop background, go to System Preferences (on the Apple menu) and choose Desktop & Screen Saver (in Personal): Desktop (control-clicking the desktop and choosing Change Desktop Background… from the pop-up menu will also get you there), then click Folder… (in the left panel) and select the folder in which you saved the picture. If the folder is not in the list, click the “+” in the lower left and navigate to the correct folder to add it. Click the picture in the right panel to display it as your desktop background.

  • Great idea… unfortunately completely RUINED by adding the logo in the down left corner…
    Please give us a ‘clean’ download WITHOUT the added logo.

    • Hey MacRat…you’re becoming like a groupie here…cool! Ah, doing that kind of background was just all in fun. We’re too busy creating high performance upgrades to really focus on images as a product category.

      But thanks for the indirect compliment…pleased to hear you dug the iMac one.

  • Pretty nifty, all right! But it has more application as a practical joke. I choose backgrounds that let me see things, heh. Downloaded it anyway, though.
