Now this is hard core geek awesome. As a long-time Mac user, myself, I was absolutely floored by this Instructables piece by gmjhowe. Here were his guidelines—the end result is nothing short of gorgeous:
1. Do not alter, cut, deform, change, or break the original Mac in anyway, I wanted to be able to return it to its original state if I chose to.
2. Not to let myself cut costs on the project just to make it more ‘amazinger’ (cheap instructables are great, but we do see a lot of ‘wow make an awesome uber computer for like $10 dollars yeah’. This was an epic project, I cut costs where I could, and used recycled parts, but I spared no expense in making this the best I could. This 1984 Macintosh deserved no less.
