  • Great post, though I’ve seen all these before. Thanks.

  • Excellent !
    Exactement ce dont j’avais besoin pour mettre un brin de changement dans ma journée.
    Maintenant, il reste à en choisir un !

  • Does anyone have high res versions of these wallpapers? All of them are like 1024×768 or only the thumbnail on flickr.

    • Mine was listed (thanks Appstorm!) and the sizes provided on my Flickr page are for a 30″ LCD (2560 x 1600). If the wallpaper is on Flickr, you need to click the “All Sizes” icon above the thumbnail to view the originals.

  • most of them aren’t very creative

  • tomas, that’s why they’re minimal ;) the point of these wallpapers is to have a clean-looking desktop. at least, for me.

    although a lot of these i have seen before, some of these are actually new to me. thanks for posting!

  • Please, no more of these round-ups. You guys have great writers on staff, and these sort of blog posts just aren’t exciting. Thank you!

    • Love them or hate them, roundups create a lot of traffic. And as long as they are ad driven, that is the reality. Personally, I don’t mind and they are pretty easily dismissed if you don’t want to read them…

      • yeah, I had to agree with the OP; please please stop these. At *least* the software roundups give me interesting software I may have not considered.

        Is someone on vacation out there? :)

    • I agree.

      The problem with these round ups is their completely average. Half of these wallpapers I saw back in 2008. First gen iPhone wallpaper? C’mon!

  • Great post. Thanks for the inspiration.

  • Alot of these are a bit substandard,, I go to MacThemes.com and Macristrocicy for my stuff.

  • This would be a great post if you had checked out the sources properly and ensured that all the linked images were uploaded in a a decent resolution. Who has a 1024×768 screen-size on a mac these days? Good posts stem from good research which I must say is something you are usually good at on AppStorm. Don’t be dropping the ball on us now.

    Disagree? Tweet me: @Prydie

    • Thanks for the feedback, Andrew. We’ll be sure to take it into account for any future posts along these lines.

      • Thanks for acknowledging this. Not everyone has a small-ish MacBook where these size wallpapers look ok.

  • I really like the collection ! Thankx

  • Although I can hardly blame appstorm for this, it’s “differently” ;-)

  • Love the Newton wallpaper!

  • I believe the motherboard one came from : http://crashnow.deviantart.com/art/motherboard-107480365

    The one on dA is a usable 1680×1050

    Nice collection

  • Nicely done.. here is mine. What is simpler then sand and water?

  • That last wallpaper was made by a friend of mine. Have the original link.

  • Beautiful TRULY MINIMAL Wallpaper. Check it out.

  • Wow, thanks for featuring my wallaper.
    I never would have thought appstorm, my favorite blog, would find my work.

    I don’t know if you guys saw or not, but I also have a 3D of the logo that I’m more proud of… XD

  • Anyone had a good copy of this? http://www.flickr.com/photos/hafiz/87525733/

    Would you mind to share? since the link is broken

  • Thanks for featuring my Newton wallpaper. :)

  • I’m going to be using: http://spud100.deviantart.com/art/Glow-Wallpaper-107137442 for this month.

  • At my Website are 2 minimalistic Wallpapers, too.

  • Here is my contribution: Apple’s Sofa:

    • The wallpaper can’t be downloaded properly. Preview app can’t recognised the downloaded jpg

  • Thanks, you guys! I now have a collection of some 500 (resolution appropriate) wallpapers for my Macs. I have a single Dropbox account for just my wallpapers, now a days! You guys have beautied up my desktop to much, keep em coming! How’s about, per se, a monthly post of just new wallpapers? And… can they be resolution-smart? I really would hate to see a great wallpaper, only to find out that its 1024×768 would look downright awful on my 30″ Apple display. Thanks again, guys!

  • Sure, I’ll think totally ‘diffrent’ by spelling correctly :)
    (11th one down)

  • I had seen these before and had downloaded one of these for my desktop. I would suggest, also carry cases which flaunts the Apple. I have this one for mine … http://www.abt.com/product/43323/MacCase-4412.html

  • The Black tiled Apple Logo fading into lower black is originally mine, and I was not asked if it would be alright for this wallpaper to be displayed, or uploaded to Desktop Nexus at such a poor resolution.

    The original, Apple Vogue Black can be found at my DA gallery http://edenprojects.deviantart.com/art/Apple-Vogue-Black-35111994.

  • Thats very true. A Mac should have an apple on screen at all times and not only the wallpaper, but also covers & Cases which does not cover the apple. I bought this transparent case for my Macbook pro which flaunts the apple just like I want it to – http://www.abt.com/product/41935/Speck-MB13AUSEECLR01.html

  • i don’t own a macbook yet, but when I do, i’m going to use one of these great backgrounds

  • A Mac should have an apple on screen at all times and not only the wallpaper
