    No it isn't. It looks nothing like the Mac Pro case.

    You have too much time on your hands.

    Um.... I stumbled on while buying a case for my new pc. I wish I had too much time on my hands.

    Eww... :eek:

    Meh, except for the handles, not so much. :p Looks like a really cheap hybrid of the MP (handles) and a gazillion other generic mid towers. ;)

    It's only saving grace might be the drive bays. :p

    I don't see that either. Just seems like the normal shots around a case to me.

    Looks a little FUGLY to me, and no where near as nice as the case I've just ordered to try my hands at a hackintosh

    All in all though a case just hides under a desk and get a good clean out every couple of months. Unless you're an uber geeky gamer and have to have Neon everything, then you'll go for one of these, and stick some more LEDs/Neon shizzle in there :eek:

    Not my cup of tea ;)

    Mac Pro:
    handles

    This case:
    handles

    SERIOUSLY, THAT'S IT.

    You want a real lookalike case? Here:

    Looks a heck of a lot more like it, and yet doesn't... because it can't. They'd be sued like eMachines was (went out of business because of it).

    All right, call me old school but the ONLY PC computer case that I ever liked was the Black, brushed metal Praetorian Case by Cooler Master. It was, and in my mind still is, a FLY looking case that was extremely well built and has stood the test of time in terms of design and aesthetics. :D

    Oh and... it would probably still look fantastic as a Hackintosh with an LCD! ;)

    Still useful for stuff. ;)
