Vintage Macs – vintage anything, for that matter – fetch a handsome price, but who’s to say you can’t have your own 1984 Mac? Well, not exactly the real deal, but pretty, pretty close.
How does a LEGO 1984 Mac sound?
But wait, there’s more! Not only do you get the perfect excuse to play with LEGO blocks – not that you need one, actually – but you also get an iPad stand.
You know what you’re doing this weekend, then! Here’s the video to guide you along. It won’t give you step-by-step instructions, but if you’re patient and diligent enough, with a little luck, you will be able to figure it out.

More about the brains behind the LEGO 1984 Mac:
Jason Kinsella and Charlotte Bakken have recreated a design classic with a modern twist. This project is testament to how a brand can sometimes move in a full circle. Kinsella and Bakken (both big fans of LEGO) recreated a scale model of the 1984 classic, Apple Macintosh. Then with a few simple adjustments to the design, they were able to incorporate the Apple iPad into the design. The result; a super cool looking place to dock the iPad, read the newspaper, or watch a film.
Jason Kinsella and Charlotte Bakken are creatives in advertising, currently working in Oslo, Norway.
