    I just acquired an Apple G5 case.
    Naturally, it is completely unsuitable for any PC build as is, but could be adapted without going to ridiculous extremes.

    Open to suggestions....

    What should I do with it?

    Craft replies carefully...this may morph to a poll.

    arent they made of titanium?
    you could redesign it into ipod cases, credit card cases, knives, bullet proof vest etc etc and make profit...

    Erm, no.
    I believe they are aluminum.

    Let's try for some ideas that don't begin with scrapping the case out for it's sheetmetal.

    Thanks for the links (and the fish)...seen 'em both.

    I know exactly how to convert it to a PC.
    The question is, "What else might it be good for?"

    That will make a suitable poll option.

    No.

    maybe he got drunk and bought a G5, then gutted it when he realised the giblets were useless.


    does clocker work in a PC shop, maybe he got given a broken one and because apple aftersales are apparently shite and apparently it's impossible to get hardware, so it was useless to the original owner


    out of interest zap. have you ever needed that backup?
