The Macbox Mod, the Os Xbox Pro

by Alisha K.

You know what’s big? Xbox and Xbox 360 cases console cases. You could fit all kinds of things in there, if you were so inclined… like a make-your-own-Macbook, or possibly a small elephant. But the Macbook? Certainly cooler (and poops less).

So here’s the story: Will Urbina needed to learn Final Cut but didn’t own a Mac. He could buy one, sure, but when you’re a modder, that’s just not how you roll. When the situation is complicated by your dislike of actual Mac products, you’ve got a real problem on your hands. But Urbina, for all his Mac hatred (hiss! boo!), seems a pretty clever fellow, and when he came across an old Xbox devkit, he figured his problems were a few months of work away from being solved.

Using that devkit case and an EFi-X dongle to allow him to boot to multiple operating systems, Urbina built what he calls the OX Xbox Pro: a custom system that combines the Mac OS and software he needs, and the Microsoft sensibilities he prefers. Urbina is not without a sense of humor, though–that’s clear from the little touches, like this:

Not-quite Mac, just like the mod.
