    no kidding. lighten up buddy :) some people really like modding computers. and i must say that modding something as pretty as a mac is hard to do. apple spent a lot of time moving things in just the right places to make everything neat and clean. with that, it makes it even more difficult to mod.

    All they are is Neon lights and paint jobs.

    Real modding requires and power supplies, round cables, huge cooling solutions so overclocking can be undertaken, and last but not least, a Hack Saw.

    Yes, a hack saw, to cut in new fan ports or that second CD bay you've always wanted in your G5.

    At least they didn't put a MS sticker on it ;).

    i can't stand modding. i mean on a PC, why not, they're just crappy boxes that n thought went into. but Macs have a design that i hate seeing screwed up. To me, it's like a personal insult to Ives every time someone cuts up their Mac to put some ugly-ass childish sophomoric neon lights or bad metallic pimped-out paint on it.

    But, just my opinion :)

    I mod my PeeCee, but wouldn't dare touch my mac. Granted, my mac is an incredible piece of engineering and the PeeCee is a piece of crap put together by myself. But I do think the paint jobs are kinda sweet. But whatever... To each his/her own!!!

    The title

    "Worst thing to do to a Mac" is misleading ... i was waiting for something to blow up or be dropped, or whatever

    It's just a paint job ...

    It's like the kids that add neons and body kits, and 10 foot formula one spoilers, and redwood sized exhaust tips

    Maybe tasteless ... but people like it, whatever

    It just reminds me of the people who mod their Hondas. It's not something that I do, but to each their own. If they love their computers, how the creativity, and they want to express themselves, I say let them, it's better on their desk than spray paint and graffiti all over the streets.

    well I wouldn't say it's the worst thing you can do to your mac, but definately the ugliest. hmmm... the worst thing I can think of is throwing it out of a moving car or 5th story window. now thats harsh;)

    I am installing Xenon headlights on my G5 to beat those guys... hehehe

    I agree with original poster. The G5 deserves a little more respect.

    I have a graet little video that plays in Flash/shockwave 7, thta relates very close to what you had in mind. I'd post in my web page but, I don't have one, Myeh:rolleyes:.

    Infact that's a little like the video, I'd really like to show it to you but just can't think of a way how. (it's approximatly 2.1mb in size)

    Well I love the G5 with the green cathodes! That's what I'd want my G5 to look like (if I had one that is :()...or maybe a blue cathode, very cool...:D

    Coopdog will love my PC :p

    I thought the worst thing you could do is sell your mac and get a PC?

    The funniest mod I've ever seen was someone who installed a working PC inside a Millenium Falcon model, amazing work!

    I saw somewhere online where a guy made a PowerMac pyramid with black and blue lighting and strobes inside. It was pretty insane.
