You aren’t broke, but don’t have much money and your beloved MacBook Pro just died, again. What to do? Tonymacx86 member Anton Vodenitcharov took matters into his own hands, creating a classy Hackintosh inside a Power Mac G4 case.

“And one or two months ago, the GPU from my macbook pro decided to die…(for the second time) as I hadn’t enough money to buy a new macbook, I decided to built my dream Hackintosh,” writes Vodenitcharov.

His hackintosh, which he calls “another G4 Stormtrooper Haswell,” is a combination of off-the-shelf PC components and a Power Mac G4 case that he purchased on eBay. Also, the project isn’t for the faint of heart as it requires some serious case modding, including not a little painting, sanding and other DIY fun, like manually grinding off motherboard mounts.

Another G4 stormtrooper? Yep, Anton followed the trail blazed by an Insanely Mac member “mishkakow”, who created a hackintosh he called “MacBane” — cool name and a sneaky geek inside joke.

You will need gumption, time, some skill and, yes, a Dremel tool. And, yes, you might even need to give a little blood, too.

Nevertheless, pretty darned cool…
