Build Your Own Lego iMac For $100

Lego imac

Author, illustrator and photographer Chris McVeigh put together this fantastic Lego iMac using Lego Digital Designer, and has released the digital version so we can all make our own copies.

Cooler yet, the design was made so that the “screen” part can be removed and replaced with something else. If you want to create your own Lego version of the default Snow Leopard desktop image (good luck with that), you can. Or if you’d prefer your Lego desktop to be as clean, minimal and icon-free as your actual one, you can do that too.

The completed model is about 6 inches tall, and 9 inches wide. If you want one, download the Digital Designer files from Chris’ website and order direct from inside the Lego software. Total price should be in the region of 100 bucks.

Chris is good at this. He’s also made a broken iPod and an iPad for Gizmodo.

I asked him if he had plans for some more, and he said:

“I do have plans for another Apple product, but I’m not ready to reveal which one just yet. :)”
