Someone ever saw a "MiniG" 4x IDE-HDD case? (looking like a mini PowerMac G5)

    I found this and thought it was nice to share http://www.ebay.de/itm/Apple-MAC-mi...014099?hash=item3f594acd53:g:07AAAOSweW5U-BNg (not my add!)

    I know these PowerMac-look-alike cases for single drives from MacAlly (modelnumber of the Ebay item also looks like a generic Macally device, though labeled with a different manufacturer) and there were similar single- and dual-bay devices from Iomega, Ultron and Stardom, but this 4x tower makes one phantasize about a Cube G5 ;)

    Wish I'd bought one of these when they were available, aluminium enclosure for Mac Mini:

    They were sold on ebay around 8 years ago.

    sort of ;) they also have Server Racks that look like the Xserve G5.

    What I don't like about the ebay auction I quoted is the big screws on the back.

    Cool, never seen these, but that reminded me of a fake Cube G5 I once had discovered on the net

    further googling turned up this (simple) solution for a Cube G4 http://images.google.de/imgres?imgurl=http://www.weblogsinc.com/common/images/5225555121255201.JPG?0.3520279456934172&imgrefurl=http://www.engadget.com/2004/05/05/turn-your-g4-cube-into-a-g5-cube/&h=298&w=300&tbnid=6rbkx1gKjn_ZBM:&tbnh=90&tbnw=91&docid=PBzO-Scbi7JfTM&usg=__cBVDfI7RQKAc4Qn6n06WyDGt7CA=&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwiI_tjdx5PKAhXGWxQKHXOnAX4Q9QEIKjAC

    Oh and lowendmac had an article (scroll down for the picture) about the case Dronecatcher mentions http://lowendmac.com/newsrev/05/0812.html
