i do not like these casemods - go and delete OS X from your PC and put some windows on it to run 3D Mark XXXX ;-) ... just my two cents ....... :-)

The camera is a 1.3 megapixel, on a Nokia 6630. It's an alright phone I guess.

the black MS mouse is replaced by a white wireless one - oh well, and i have cleaned my desk ;-)

 

the mac mini is used as media center (connected to my tv), powered by an ATI Remote Wonder (16€ at ebay).

 

 

however, nothing is modded (just overclocked - mac mini 1,25@1.,50GHz ;-)), so it does not rellay fit in this topic ;-)

 

the x86 OS X machine is a MSI MPC 915, 1GB of RAM 80GB Samsung HD GMA900/x500 PCI-E and a P4 630 (3GHz) - runs quite well, all hardware is supported, and even the card reader does work! :-)

 

 

btw: i like the G5 case :-)

Some of these mods are pretty sweet, especially the one by JasonT1701, nice work man. They are all nice for windows boxes but I'm sort of upset by the lack of mac themed modding. Just adding an etched in apple logo on that acrylic case would take it one step further. I'm not saying I'm a great modder by any means, just expected something else from this topic. I expect my new case soon, if I get a chance to break out the dremel and mod it, i'll post the images here, hopefully without being flamed in the mean time from my expectations.

Yeah, some more mods would be great, but sadly I'm unable to do any right now. :D

 

I'll do some stuff once I get past all of my personal troubles.

One thing I'm looking into is getting an old DEC MicroVAX II case.

Picture of similar case.

Hopefully I can work out all of the problems involved with getting the case!

Why is the word 'Micro' in the name of that case?!? It's the same size as my mini fridge holding the beer in my living room! Just think, you could rig that thing to run mac osx and hold a 6pack for you while you tinker with the os...
