Now this is an unusual setup

Redditor RRR loves the look of old Apple computers, but needs the power of modern hardware.

For proof, check out the unusual setup below. RRR made some clever modifications, including running a “headless” M1 MacBook Air as the main machine. The iMac G3 and Mac SE/30 got some sweet hacks, too. See the post for details.
