hahaha that's awesome dude.

That's makes me want to get a REALLY old comp and mod it with a G3-class mac motherboard to run OS X.........

Hmmm.... G3 Beige board in an an Apple //e (Yea, just find a USB keyboard with keys bout the same size as the Apple // built in keyboard and you're in business). Wonder if you could cram a CD-ROM drive into one of those big-honkin Disk ][ 5 1/4" floppy drive cases (yea, a slot loader drive might do it without ruining the look too much)? Haha, yea, then I'll have to put the guts from the Apple //e into a spare Compaq PC case and stick it in the computer lab at the university and watch the history majors try and figure it out.


If only I had time and money to waste.........

Too bad they didn't just enlarge the floppy bay a little and stick in a half height slot loader with no eject, etc, it'd look dandy.

That was a messy job

Why ruin such a beautiful computer anyway?!
