Default Mac-themed PC Case?

Anyone know if there's a non-custom Apple themed or look-alike case out there. I recall one that was based off the old g3 or 4 called rotten apple (it was like black and red). If anyone knows of any such cases, post here, thanks.

man.....steve jobbs was too much of a damn hippy trying to create 'fancy' looking computers with shiney cases and stupid sh!t like the 'Apple Cube' or whatever that was called.....and I don't know how people got this dilussion that Macs are better for graphics....yeah I've seen macs used at local colleges and whatnot...but in the movies when they are using softimage, lightwave, maya, stuff like that they aren't using Macs.....macs are too expensive and just hippie-ish.

Well Lian-Li makes high quality cases, and aluminum cases disspate alot of heat meaning this will keep your stuff cool.
