    Very nice. Why have a G5 when you've got AMD... Still, would have been better to have scouted for a G5 case (though I wouldn't put any money on finding one :lol: ?

    id like to let everyone know what i think about this conversion, if the guy made the converted comp look better, the nit wouldn't be bad, plus if he sold the components for cash i don't see why it would be so bad.

    Nooooo! What kind of heartless person could destroy a fine piece of machinary????? A base model G5 (dual-processor) is $2,499.00 from the Apple Store! Apple is great. I don't care what anyone says. Apple is great. They have the greatest stuff. When I get $4000, I'm going to buy a PowerBook G4, with an iPod, AirPort Extreme Wireless Access Point (802.11b and g compatible), AppleCare protection (nearly $400!!) and a few other things =)

    Sure mac's look great, but the pc side is catching up.

    Besides, apple was founded by a bunch of stoners :lol:

    Taken from Digitalblueshift's signature:
    "Arguing whether a PC is superior to a Macintosh makes about as much sense as whether having a penis is better than having a vagina. Smart people recognize the advantages and delights of playing with both."

    What is a far, far more shocking notion to me than someone gutting a G5 case for a sloppy PC mod, is that he actually got hate mail and death threats just for saying he did. I mean, a G5 is a beautiful machine, but like a PC, it is STILL JUST A MACHINE, PEOPLE!

    Jeez. Get those geeks some perspective. :rolleyes:

    I'm thinking I should do this just to upset the mac community for reacting in that way. I mean it would only be polite to ask if that were indeed real. Not instant hate mail and death threats. Over a computer? Geez people, unplug and get a life.

    whats worse than this hoax(the G5 is the most beautiful computer i ahve ever seen) is that peopel have probably really done stuff like this. Gutting their G5's or any other Apple product, and converting it to a PC.....
