If you want a Mac that looks like the trashcan Mac Pro, but don’t actually want to spend the several thousand dollars it costs to buy a Mac Pro, the Dune Case might be for you: it’s a Mac Pro-inspired PC case for any hackintosh you care to throw into it.

Of course, Dune Case isn’t actually a Mac Pro. Instead, it’s just an empty shell PC case, which DIY types can use as a basis for a PC-building project.

It’s inspired by the same jet engines that inspired the Mac Pro. The idea behind this design is simple: Powerful PCs need a lot of airflow to prevent their components from overheating. What’s better at moving air around than a jet engine? That’s why the Dune Case also boasts a 140mm fan at the top.

The Dune Case costs $189, and comes in either Mac Pro black or gold. It weighs about 5.73 pounds, which is actually fairly heavy for a PC case, but that’s mostly due to the fact that it’s all milled out of aluminum.

OK, it’s not a Mac Pro. Not really. But hey, you could always turn the Dune Case into a hackintosh as powerful as the Mac Pro.
