Recycling Power Mac G5 Chassis

Posted on July 21, 2012

The chassis of the Apple Power Mac G5 debuted in 2003 and the Mac Pro—to this day!—remains with the same look and feel. The case is a thing of beauty and while PowerPC processors have fallen by the wayside in Apple products, we can recycle parts of the machine and build some modern boxes.

The two leftmost cases have been striped of their interior parts, we have acquired a few MountainMods motherboard mounts, and these machines should be operational linux boxes in short order.
