There are a few standards we can find in almost every Mac related website: eye candy style, minimalism and attention to detail. We can say that the websites follow a mac mania, a mac culture. And we will find that in ninety percent of Mac related websites, from iPhone and iPad apps to desktop apps. All websites are clean, minimal, have beautiful images, background, typography, etc. Probably designers get inspiration from Jonathan Ive and all the wonderful products from Apple, and this is really working, cause Mac related websites are pretty beautiful.

    My favorite is drop in, but all the others are great as well. The designs do look like they came from the same designer thought.

    Thanks,

    Almost complete crap. The only branded, memorable ones are dribbblr and Dovetail (kind of). This cranked-out copycat stuff is a reflection of the unoriginal clone culture.
