Company offers Intel \"upgrade\" for Power Mac Cube

updated 12:50 pm EDT, Mon June 13, 2005

Intel Cube

A Korean firm is offering an "upgrade" that will transform a Power Mac G4 Cube into an Intel PC. The upgrade features 1.5 or 1.8GHz versions of Intel's Pentium-M processor, and is "aimed at PC users who may be wooed by the stylish G4 Cube and thus consumed with a desire to dump their beige PC box," reports the Inquirer. "There are a substantial number of people who love Apple's hardware from a design point of view, but who have no desire to run Apple software [...] This upgrade is theirs. For people out of the ordinary," a representative said in February. The PCube 1.5 and PCube 1.8 run Windows XP are priced at $400 and $450. Since the U-Power announcement, Apple announced it would use Intel chips in future Macs. However, it is unlikely a U-Power-equipped Cube would be able to boot Mac OS X for Intel. Apple has said only forthcoming Intel-based Macs will be able to run the operating system.
