Hackintosh Mod Used an Actual Trash Can to Look Like Apple's New Mac Pro
We’ve covered the Mac Pro quite a bit on No Film School (too much according to some of you), but considering how long Apple had kept the same design, there was no doubt a new one would get a lot of attention — especially when it looks nothing like any computer you’ve ever used before. The general consensus is that the new Mac Pro closely resembles a trash can, so what better case to use for a new Hackintosh computer than an actual trash can? That’s exactly what a German modder did.
As this build gets so much attention I think I have to clarify some details.
I am NOT the builder of this mod. I got the permission of the “modder” to present the mod here. The original thread of the build has been in a german forum, which name I am not allowed to post, and has already been deleted. The admins of the source forum are a little restrictive….
All credit goes to the user “sascha288″, he is the owner and builder of that case.
The hardware inside:
Core i3 (Haswell)
Gigabyte z87n wifi
SDD & HDD
And here is Apple’s actual Mac Pro for comparison:
There is some decent power under the hood of the new Apple computers, and obviously this project was not done with performance in mind, but a mod constructed out of a real trash can to resemble the Mac Pro is pretty fantastic. For more photos and information check out the link below.
