ClearCube for G4 Cube

PowerLogix today announced the , an updated acrylic enclosure for the PowerMac G4 Cube. The ClearCube is a follow-up to the PowerCube, which was a limited quantity run of aluminum alloy enclosures (no longer in production). PowerLogix says the ClearCube (8.5"x8.5") offers several improvements over the original cube enclosure that address the heat issues sometimes associated with CPU and GPU upgrades in both the PowerCube (9"x9") and the original Power Mac G4 Cube enclosure (8"x8"). It will ship next week for $130 and includes the acrylic enclosure, aluminum anodized grille, the DC/DC card relocation bracket and cable, and all mounting hardware.

    the point

    "PowerLogix says the ClearCube (8.5"x8.5") offers several improvements over the original cube enclosure that address the heat issues sometimes associated with CPU and GPU upgrades in both the PowerCube (9"x9") and the original Power Mac G4 Cube enclosure (8"x8")."

    it's a case mod (or a whole new case) for those who are upgrading their cubes.

    But....

    again..what's the point.

    By the time I buy a new case, and a new cpu, and a new hard disk....I could get a new iMac.

    good for you...

    ...so go ahead and get a new mac. obviously, this isn't for you. but for those who want to keep their cube, then this is an option for them.

    personally, i think i'd rather have an upgraded cube than an iMac.

    Imagine

    Putting a G5 inside one of these, or rather a dual G5. That along with a new 30" Apple display would be very neat. JMHO.

    But it's fugly compared to the original.

    Just add a slow fan in the space alloted like I did. It ran muchmuchmuch cooler.

    It is a matter of oppinion. Maybe someone would like to bring their cube up to date as far as styling is concerned. Why do you think they made the iPod smaller and in different colors?

    But, but, but, why not just make the drive smaller.
    But, but, but, why do that? the old design is just fine. Nicer.

    That is your oppinion, and I'm glad you are in no position of to make any decisions about Apple, because things are going good!

    But, but, but, nothing.
