The Ultimate Mac Portable Mod (Video)

In terms of preserving the original product, this is the perfect mod. Patrick Blampied of Ultimate Hipster Tech (via Cult of Mac) has gutted a retro Macintosh Portable, inserted the hardware of an NB100 netbook into it, and somehow got OS X running. The end result is an awesome mod that looks just like the original.

Originally introduced for a whopping $6,500 back in 1989, the Mac portable is bulky by today’s standards, however with OS X on it looks cool, not to mention that the keyboard has been completely re soldered to work with OS X and the original mouse also works (even though it’s now a laser mouse).

The whole thing is powered by a cordless drill battery, and a whole lot of soldering and fiddly work must have gone in to it. Hats off for a great mod!
