Mac Mini Rides: Chevy Beast
Thursday January 26, 2006

What's better than getting together with a couple of friends, and installing a Mac mini into your truck? Zach Ducker, a Mac mini enthusiast, and his friends have created the Chevy Beast. This Mac'd out ride includes a 1.42GHz Mac mini, 10.2" Xenarc 1020TSV touch screen, Garmin GPS V, Cirque track-pad, and more. A custom-made center console covered in pink shag (yes, you read it right) houses the Mac mini, Carnetix power supply, Pyle video amplifier/distributor, 800W AC inverter with two 110V AC outlets, USB 2.0 hub, and four 12V outlets.

Zach has posted a bunch of pictures on his website showing the project from beginning to end. He's even posted some videos of the setup in action. Go check it out!

Sorry just think it looks a mess. The F150 was miles better but thats just my opinion.

The Jeepintosh was my personal favorite.
