Hackintosh Hardware, Installed in a Cardboard Box

All I can say is that I definitely paid too much for my Mac Pro.

One of the fellas at One Block Off the Grid was having trouble running AfterEffects on his Mac. It was time for a new machine. So, after purchasing 800 bucks worth of parts on Amazon, he decided to assemble them not in a PC case, but in the very box they came in. The result is a laugh-worthy (and ugly as hell (and totally awesome)) assemblage that needs to be basically hotwired just to turn on. I don’t think there’s ever been a machine more worthy of the ‘Hackintosh’ name.

High five, guys.

    Jeez – they could have bought a case for around $30 which would have a real power switch.

    Spent $850 for parts, and nobody wanted to spend a few dollars for a power switch?
