    I just saw a link to this over at MacSlash. Apparently the story at OverClocker's about the guy who gutted a G5 and replaced the insides with PC hardware :eek: was just a practical joke. Phew! Check it out:

    (Sorry is this is already being discussed at the end of some long thread... I figure it deserves a new thread.)

    Yes & Yes...

    But it doesn't deserve a Second, third, fourth, etc. new thread.

    ie, it's already been posted in a new thread.

    One question though how the heck did his buddy just happen to have a empty G5 shell and where would you get one even if you could? i doubt Apple would just have those laying around?

    Sorry if this (the fact that the original article was a joke) has truly been covered in its own new thread, but I'm just not seeing it... anywhere. I even searched (of course searching for two key words here, "PC" and "G5," does no good w/ the current search engine).

    edit: well I do see it in the MacBytes forum, but that should hardly count, as it's more a forum for a whole "other" site.

    that guy is a freak. He shouldn't be allowed near any good computer again! Put him in a room with padded walls, and a few windoze peecees, you know, the ones that go to the BSOD.

    I am thinking about putting a PC ina B&W case I have a B7W with a messed up Mother Board and can't afford to pay $159 for an outdated mother board BUT I have a lot of other Macs and hate to do it BUT I need to use a PC so why not use it in style? Unless some one can hook me up with a cheap Mother Board for a B&W

    Spam Spam Spam Spam Spam Spam spam.



    How much spam can the spam man eat before he turns back in to Spam?


    It was a hoax.

    Or not.

    Or the guy didn't want attention.


    Whatever.

    we have several thread on it.

    MacBytes should be the offical thread because It was there first... and IT IS A PART OF MAC Rumors Forums.

    It does count.

    What a crazy story. At least he had something positive to say in his story, " I have NEVER seen a finer made case." He should think about going into journalism! :p
