It is a crime to my senses to look at things like that.

Reminds me the time when I saw on tv an special of the "Venezuelan's Michael Jackson" and things like that.

Or like those choes you find in the 3rd world countries :)D) that says "Rebook".

Sad, sad, world. :(

It always excites me to see someone dig their own hole by copying the materials that make someone else's product, but not hiring an industrial designer.

20 to 1 says that the innards of that box are off the shelf ATX case parts.

That thing is butt-f*cking ugly... To call it a Mac case clone, or anything like a Mac, is an insult, pure and simple.

Apple should sue for that alone. :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :D

it looks very cheap and tacky and is obviously built of poor quality. flimsy plastic hinges and doors that swing open. barf. that thing is just plain nasty.

I wouldn't call it a Mac clone case. It looks more like a radio shack compaq clone case :p .

I just wonder how the living blue shiny plastic ugly he!! could the handle lift that thing alone and not break! It's like using a twig to pick up a CD-RW, except the CD-RW doesn't have a handle. :D :cool:

Nice breadmaker.

Does it have a timer on it so I can wake up in the morning to a nice fresh loaf of pumpernickel? Will I be able to upgrade it to do bagels later on?

Like anyone would trust that handle! Oh, and don't forget that all-important 3 1/2" floppy drive in front--real Mac-like.

Proof once again that if you want to see what PCs will look like in 3-5 years, look at a new Mac now. Sheesh.





(Of course the cruel irony is that this piece of junk probably has a faster motherboard/RAM than a 1gig G4 PM dualie and proboably costs at least a grand less. Let's hope MWNY will fix that once and for all...)

How did you ever find that thing ... How can they even think of calling that thing a clone. I wonder how much something like that goes for?

well, I'm surprised it hasn't happened at that level sooner. Pretty ugly, but the nice thing is that if we get new enclosures (if, who knows lately) that will be the old style, *passé*. So I say let them sell it, just feel sorry for the people who actually buy it....

For peecee cases, I like what Cooler Master has to offer. I have one of the ATC110 cases for my game system, and it was easy to put everything into. Hell, I didn't even get any cuts from it (pretty impossible with any other case that's NOT a Mac).
