Old Apple G4 Towers Find New Life As A Lovely Coffee Table

At one time in their lives, these G4 towers were Apple’s flagship workstations — possibly cutting hundreds of hours of footage or editing thousands of photos. But today they’re barely useful as paperweights and probably best suited as a pair of stylish supports for this Crunching Numbers coffee table.

$US600 might seem a little steep for a pair of defunct computer towers and a large piece of glass, but there’s probably quite a few man hours involved in turning the hardware into a centrepiece for any Apple fanatic’s living room. The addition of a brightly painted shock absorber in-between is a little odd, as are the non-functioning cranks on the towers, but let’s just chock those up to design for design’s sake.
