Apple China marked the launch of the U2 iPod, iPod Photo and iMac G5 with a huge public party on November 11.

The Beijing Mac User Group has published an extensive report with pictures from the event, which took place in a Beijing club.

"To start the event, two ropes suddenly appeared from the ceiling - or, more precisely, from a narrow ramp near the top of building. Two daredevils, with iMac G5 and two iPods in hand, slowly made their way down to the ground."

Apple also showed its famous '1984' ad at the party.
