Apple PowerMac G5 / MacPro Side Panel Clock

$129.31

Here at MacTechnology, we're always looking for great new ways to re-use old & obsolete Apple computers and the parts that went inside them.

Well how's this for an idea ?

Apple's PowerMac G5 series were the first to be made in their now-standard all-aluminium housing, and boy, they looked like real business machines.

To access the inner workings of the computer for adding memory, hard drives or other storage devices, this beautiful aluminium cover plate popped off the side to reveal the whole interior, ready for easily upgrading the RAM or drives.

So we've set aside a stack of these access coverplates from redundant Apple PowerMac G5s and early MacPro models, turning them into good old aluminium analogue quartz clocks ...

These G5 / MacPro coverplates are SQUARE, and they measure a whopping 47.5cm / 18.7in across and high, so make sure you've got enough space where you want to put it ...

PLEASE NOTE: When you order your clock, we will place the mechanism wherever you want it on the face. We'd recommend standing it on a shelf, but the clock mechanism is complete with a socket fitted on the back to wall hang on a single nail, so if this is your plan we'd recommend you request positioning the clock centrally above the Apple logo ....

And we also include an AA battery, naturally !
