MacRumors Contest: Win a New Mac Studio from GRID Studio
To celebrate the upcoming launch of Apple’s new Mac Studio, we’ve teamed up with GRID Studio to offer MacRumors readers a chance to win a new M1 Max Mac Studio or one of GRID Studio’s deconstructed artworks of Apple devices.
GRID Studio is known for creating art from vintage Apple devices that are an important part of Apple’s history. Each device is disassembled and the components are cleverly displayed behind a glass frame that can be hung on the wall of any Apple fan.
Since GRID Studio works with classic Apple devices, there won’t be any deconstructed Mac Studio artwork for sale for a while, but there are plenty of other deals on the GRID Studio website, with prices starting at around $40 and increasing with complexity.
The GRID 1, for example, is one of GRID Studio’s most popular pieces because it features an original iPhone, perhaps the most important device in Apple’s history. Priced at $400, the GRID 1 often sells out, but GRID Studio has a new set of GRID 1 parts coming later in March.
Measuring 13x13x8, the GRID 1 features a ripped iPhone with all internal components separated and labeled so you can see everything that made the original iPhone so special at a glance. The iPhone case is shown alongside the individual components which include the power button, headphone jack, speaker, logic board, circuit board, earpiece, and other components.
Each GRID artwork highlights what was important about the featured iPhone. With the $140 iPhone 4S GRID, for example, there’s a clear take on the classic square edges that Apple recently brought back for the iPhone 12 and iPhone 13, along with the circular volume buttons and the A5 chipset.
If you have a favorite classic iPhone, chances are GRID has taken it apart. In addition to the original iPhone, there are also GRID parts for everything up to the iPhone X, as well as A-series chips like the A5X, Apple Watch, Magic Mouse, and more.
The $269 iPhone X GRID is interesting because the iPhone X was Apple’s first iPhone with a notch and the Face ID facial recognition system. You can see the Face ID components laid out alongside other iPhone X components, such as the dual-lens camera, Taptic Engine, and the A11 Bionic chip.
Each GRID Studio part includes all the original parts of the device, but the company does not use real batteries to avoid any issues with the battery expanding or exploding with age. The GRID artwork is perfect for a desktop decoration or as a gift for an Apple fan. Disassembled devices are attractive to look at, informative, and provide a fun insight into Apple’s history.
One grand prize winner will receive an M1 Max Mac Studio with a 10-core GPU, a 24-core GPU, 32GB Unified Memory and a 512GB SSD, as well as a GRID 1 which includes iPhone origin. One second prize winner will receive the GRID iPhone X, one third prize winner will receive the GRID iPhone 4S and three additional winners will receive the GRID A5X.
