This exceptional mod uses the shell of an old Xbox to house stunning new hardware.Â While Macs have that sleek, sexy feel, when they’re priced at $4500 that feeling fades quickly.Â So instead of buying a super expensive Mac, learn how to build your own for under $1500.Â The most stunning part of the project isn’t the concept, it’s the detailed, superb build video posted below.Â Watch, learn, and enjoy.
The specs on the finished machine:
- 2.93Ghz Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550S processor
- NVIDIA Geforce 9800 GT graphics card
- 8GB of RAM
- 16GB solid state drive
- Four traditional hard drives – (Windows 7, Snow Leopard, and two 500GB 7,200 RPM drives for video editing)
Again, the video speaks for itself: A superb project with a fantastic result.Â Check out more Mac hacks, iPhone hacks, and be sure to subscribe so you don’t miss out. Oh, and in case you’re wondering, this took 35-40 hours and 2 months to complete.
