Recommended Posts

Do you remember the Apple II? With this new PC case, you can relive the past! But do you have to give up too much?

That's cool. I want it. Too expensive though...

Won't Apple stop this?

The design of the case itself would be public domain, the patents on anything on it would be expired.  There is a question of the 'Apple II' graphic though.  It's true that Apple abandoned the rainbow design in 1999 but recently filed a new trademark likely for the sale of retro themed merch, t-shirts, hats and the like.  That said, even if Apple had clearly spent nearly two decades not doing 'trade' by that 'mark', the opportunity to argue brand confusion is blatantly obvious.

 

I'm going to guess that the plan is 'Let's sell it with the Apple II badge in the box and see what Apple does, if they do say something, we'll stop including that case badge but still sell the case.'

why did they bother making this an ATX motherboard case? Seems silly given the single expansion slot compatibility... If it was ITX or mATX it would have far more room for a standard power supply and maybe better cooling...

Just surveying around but....

Imma thinking of designing/making Monitor box to slap on top. It'll use a lcd and maybe have something other stuff inside(ie harddrives)

 

since I mostly only got macintoshes laying around (I know nothing about apple II's), Was wondering What vintage apple monitor design should I base my monitor box on? ie a specific model

 

(advice and other tips would be nice!)

 

thanks~

This is my post about How this is most likely a scam.    

So far there has been no action from Indiegogo, or LMG about how to help people protect themselves from shitty crowdfunding campaigns.  Like this one 

Just today someone bought into the campaign that is a month late in delivering the product, and without an update for 3 months.  

PLEASE BE CAREFUL OUT THERE PEOPLE.
