This Apple fan wanted a Mac Pro, but didn’t want to spend $2000-plus. Fortunately, he had a broken MacBook (only motherboard was salvageable) laying around to part out and the skills to build a custom brushed-aluminum case. Click here for first picture in gallery.

An intrepid modder was given a sad, water-damaged MacBook and turned it into his own little Mac Pro Mini with a little know-how and a $40 Mac Pro case knockoff.
