    Remember CoreComps? Well, they're back, and badder than ever. Now, instead of selling built macs, they give you the ability to build your own, with their new case and custom powersupply. Check out www.corecomps.com to see how to build your own killer mac system for $700-$1300!!! (Single 450MHz - Dual 1.4GHz G4).

    That is one nice case, too!!! :)

    What's up with the less-than-tasteful LED colours? I thought Macs were supposed to be sleek.

    That case looks like the one Shuttle makes, tho...

    All they sell is the case it seems, everything else is linked to other places, OWC, ebay... there are more than enough FAQ's on the web for you to do it yourself, rather than wait for them to ebay a pre-drilled case.

    Note that they are only supplying the case (without PSU). You need to use eBay or some other method to get the motherboard, CPU, PSU and so on (although you can, of course, use normal CD/DVD drives, memory and the rest).

    They sell a custom power supply and you can buy any CPU from GigaDesigns, Sonnet, etc.

    Macs are sleek. Macs are made by Apple. This isn't a Mac.

    I have to point out, once again, that $700 to build a computer that you could buy whole for $300-$400 is silly. And since you basically have to gut a working G4 to put the parts into this ugly beige case I'd put it in the "stupid" category.

    Dude, that looks like either a direct rip from one of last year's Coolermaster/Lian-Li cases or it IS one of those cases -_-.

    I mean, if you're gonna rip a design, at least make it look good.

    The second thing is that PC case are typically designed only for ATX form factor--I dunno about Macs, but I'm pretty sure they aren't following the ATX format--which means more custom modding, etc.

    Hey! I still have my PowerTower Pro, and I love it! In fact, it is what I am using right now.

    Although I did put it into a clear acrylic case, and upgraded the processor to run Mac OS X 10.2, however, it still has the origional Power Computing mainboard, and I still love it dearly.
