macportableYou know what they say about us humans – we are a truly creative tour de force on this side of the galaxy, and when passion and genius meets, we normally end up with something out of the ordinary. Case in point, a nostalgic modder decided that having a Macintosh Portable lying around is not going to do the machine any good, which is why he decided to turn Apple’s very first laptop to run on OS X, dubbing it as “a great café computer” in the same process. Of course, the software is not the only thing that has changed, since underneath the clean and sterile looking white plastic lies the innards of a Toshiba NB100 netbook which heroically “sacrificed” itself in the pursuit of perfection.

I’m just being a little bit dramatic here – no one in their right mind would want to shed a tear for the Toshiba NB100 netbook – after all, this is more or less a dead market despite looking all too promising just a few years ago (before the tablet world really took off, of course). Its keyboard has been rewired via a USB controller, while the ball mouse has been converted to an optical mouse. Wi-Fi and USB connectivity have also been thrown into the mix for your added portable computing pleasure.
