Well I saw this a while ago, and thought I’d post it, it caused a stir in the Mac community, but the creator of this story, Andy, later told us that it was made up! It was a very believable story!
See the whole thing here: http://www.overclockers.com/tips1133

This is what Andy Said:
Quote:
I got a free G5 shell from a buddy of mine and pulled a prank on a Mac loving friend. He got so upset. I wrote up a little story, my imagination and warped sense of humor kicked in. I sent it to OC.com just to see the reaction. I honestly didn't think it was going to be posted. I cannot believe how fast or how far it has spread on the internet. There are an amazing number of people who are emotionally attached to inanimate objects such as computers. Mac fans seem to be much worse that I ever expected. The G5 is amazing, I would never dream of really doing that

Andy - G5 Killer"

What fascinates me is the overwhelming reaction among the Apple community. I have read about the zeal among Mac users, but the reaction to this story is a real eye-opener. I hope Andy's confession soothes those who felt so strongly about gutting a perfectly good G5.


This is what outraged people (you can see why!)
Quote:
I got a shiny new Apple G5 for Christmas. I loved the case, but I’m no Mac user. So I....
Get a brand new dual processor G5, then
Rip out everything,
Cut out the back of the case so I can use a PC motherboard, and
Install an Athlon motherboard.

The case would look cool, but getting hold of one would set you back

Yeah I could imagine those are pretty expensive as far as cases go.
