    i think we should wait at least 2-3 years because the prices of original mac pro 2013 like any 10 year old mac will drop lower than kim kardashian on bad day
    a for effort tho good work ,but original is original

    "Kim Kardashian chi?" :headbang:
    Yes original is original. But a mackintosh is a do it yourself trip, you need time and motivation, and probably the better is on the path

    A blacksmith sunday
    Starting from an aluminium plate, I trimmed a circle and then I bent him beating on a small anvil, using a metal plate as mask!

    (Yes this will be the cover of this mac pro replica)

    The supports also are aluminium, folded and glued with a pair of soft rings as support (originate from a CD case).

    The new top cover, top view.

    After that I painted the case in order to uniform the black and cancel the "Made in china" firm :wave:

    Soon the final touch with the DC cable mask, and some final photo.

    The Hack Pro mkII almost complete. The Pi case now seem more familiar, more similar to... a trashcan!
    The DC mask is not yet painted. I am waiting the graphic card (In a way or other, will fit).

    Now I will test the build with the case closed. I don't know what will happen about temperatures...:oops:
    The actual configuration leave only one Noctua industrial fan at the bottom.
