Hackintosh Jr. Casemod: the Power to Crush the Other Kids

by Paul Strauss

Want a small Mac, but like the look of the beefy aluminum Mac Pro tower? Too impatient to wait for Apple to make a metal Mac Mini, this one modder decided to craft his own.


While not running on official Apple hardware, the Hackintosh Jr. gets its looks from the big tower Macs, but at 5.5″ (h) x 7″ (w) x 5″ (d), it’s not much bigger than a Mac Mini (although it is quite a bit taller).


Modder Widefault (the same guy who gave us the Geiger Counter PC and the Lunchbox Firewall),  built the Hackintosh Jr. from hand-shaped mesh and sheet aluminum. At the heart of the Mac Hack Jr. is an Aaeon GENE-9310 sub-compact mobo, sporting an Intel Core Duo T2500 processor, 2 GB of RAM, integrated Wi-Fi connectivity and a 2.5″ Seagate Momentus hard drive.


Of course, when I first heard the name “Hackintosh Junior,” I thought that Widefault was talking about this system…

    This thing is pretty badass considering how small it is. Even though mac’s are terrible and have to run windows now to keep people interested and gain new customers. Think about it…that’s like honda making cars enable to use ford or chevy parts to keep people buying them. Pretty pathetic.

        They have to run windows to get people to buy them now. That is THE only reason they are getting more sales.

          Dude, chill out. Macs can run windows cause they come with Intel CPUs now. Pc’s can run Mac too if you do it right. Now go hump your Dell in the corner of your room and stop complaining about Mac cause you don’t have one.
