Anyone interested in buying the DIY-intosh?

Well, I kinda want to buy a more portable Mac (an older 17" MacBook Pro), so I'm going to be selling this for $400. Why $400? Well, I actually built it for just over $300 and similar Macs are over that price. It's really great at running a MakerBot, and it's good for iPhone development, too.


  • 2.0 GHz Intel Core Duo Processor
  • 2 GB of DDR2 667 MHz RAM
  • Bluetooth
  • Wireless N networking
  • 100 GB 7200 RPM SATA HDD
  • 2 USB ports
  • 1 Firewire 400 port
  • 1 Mini-DVI port
  • Mic In and Audio Out ports
  • 10/100 Ethernet port
  • Magsafe power connector
  • OS X Snow Leopard pre-installed

What it will come with in the box:

  • DIY-intosh
  • A 60W MagSafe PSU
  • OS X Snow Leopard Disk
  • A Mini-DVI to DVI Adapter
  • A Mini-DVI to HDMI Adapter (video only)

Note #1: The DIY-intosh does not have a DVD drive. You can, however purchase a USB DVD drive if you need that capability. You can also enable Remote Disk on the DIY-intosh (search Google for the terminal commands). I suggest that once you have recieved the DIY-intosh that you enable Remote Disk and make a DMG of the install DVD. Then, you can restore that DMG to an 8 GB USB drive. In the event you need to install OS X again, you can just boot off of that USB drive.

Note #2: I don't ship overseas. It's just too expensive.

Email me ASAP if you're interested (click on the "Contact Me" page to see my email address). If many people email me with serious interest, I'll put it on ebay, otherwise I'll just use SellSimply. I must recieve at least one email with serious interest before I put it on either site.
