Case Mod: Skinned iBook G3

We may earn a commission from links on this page.

Reader Aaron, being a fan of 80s pop culture and voiding warranties, skinned an old G3 iBook and took pictures. And with laptops, just like exes, naked pictures always wind up on the internet. Another thing they have in common: they both have the nickname Skeletor.

Well, the one originally made by Apple, after being cleared of its shell, has much better airport reception and runs lots cooler—both expected since it's the cover that's keeping all the air trapped inside and interfering with reception. Not that we actually recommend this. The case is what prevents stuff like, oh, half a can of diet coke, from destroying your entire system. But it is pretty cool to see done to an old G3. We salute your de-casing skills.
