You may be disheartened about the discontinuation of the 27-inch iMac, but fans of 2002’s iMac G4 have had to live much longer without their favorite all-in-one. Thankfully, a good modder can bring old tech back to life.

The iMac G4 still holds a special place in many enthusiasts’ hearts, so the machine has been modded into the modern era before, including with an Intel NUC. The second-generation iMac sported an LCD screen on a unique arm connected to a striking circular base. The look is still distinct, but the G4’s specs obviously can’t compete today.

Apple’s 15-inch iMac G4 had a resolution of 1024×768, a far cry from the 4480×2520 that Apple offers in its current 24-inch iMac. The 2002 machine came with a PowerPC G4 processor running at 1 GHz, an Nvidia GeForce4 MX, 256MB of DDR SDRAM running at 333 MHz, and an 80GB hard drive running at 7,200 rpm.
