Chromac Lets Plastic iMacs Join the Aluminum Club
September 15th, 2007
If you haven’t yet managed to snag one of Apple’s latest aluminum and glass iMacs, there’s now a way to give your older iMac a healthy dose of metal in its otherwise plastic diet.
These covers from ChroMac wrap around the outside of your white plastic iMac, giving it a dramatic new look. The metal-plated cases come in a variety of finishes including chrome, black chrome, 24k gold, antique gold, platinum as well as several other rich colors.
ChroMac uses high-end plating techniques to coat an aluminum body, resulting in a really striking look for your iMac. At $400 to $500 a piece, they’re not exactly cheap, but they’re worth a look if you want to give your iMac a visual update without buying a whole new computer.
