Apple G5 Case
Wouldn't it be nice to actually be able to buy an actual Apple G5 case for you pc...just imagine how easily one could definitely mimic an Apple computer with a Windows enabled system.

Re: Apple G5 Case
Look here!
Who put a G3Cube Core into a self made G5 styled case:

After searching the web for a while I found this case already made!
it's not exactly the same as the G5 case but is all I could find.

Re: Apple G5 Case
It would be the great to buy some case which was already designed for G5 but where to find it? eBay? how about something else? Recently I read the article about buying something online, so I wouldn't buy something from it.

Re: Apple G5 Case
Wow that would be amazing, Some big compnay like Thermaltake should really make a slick apple case for windows users... That would be big hit in my opinion.....

The most i could do for making mine look like Mac would be putting a Apple sticker on it. lol..

Re: Apple G5 Case
Well, at least here in Germany you can find some G5-styled cases, but they're just looking alike at first glance. With a price of around 35.- Euro, it of course is not state of the art, it more is like cheapest China-crap. But figure out yourself
http://cgi.ebay.de/PC-ATX-Midi-Tower...QQcmdZViewItem

You can sometimes find an empty G5-case (original one), but prices are sky-high usually and the quality of this used cases is mostly not worth talking about (scratches, etc.)
A brand new G5-case was once sold for over 500 bucks (well, it sure is a nice thing, but 500 bucks is 500 bucks)...

The second thing is, that modding a G5-case to be capable of housing a regular x86-PC is quite a lot of work due to the very different mainboard- and plug-layouts. I once have seen somebody doing it with a Dell-PC to fit in a G5-case... I will post it as soon as I find the link...
