The Power Rack
Marathon Computer presents the smartest solution for those who need the power of a G3 with the flexibility of a rack-mounted system. The PowerRack chassis houses the components of your Power Macintosh G3 in a secure, durable case that will easily fit into industry standard 19" racks. The PowerRack G3 occupies only 4U of rack space, and at only 18" deep it will neatly fit all computer cabinetry. That's not all -- the locking front access panel keeps unauthorized hands off.
You use your workstation in real-world environments, where desktop plastic cases just don't cut the mustard (that's an industry term). The PowerRack's all-metal chassis and shock-absorbing drive cage is more roadworthy than even you are. Every component stays secure and ventilated even during the longest workouts. PowerRacks fit a wide range of installations: server rooms, mobile systems, scientific/laboratory, studios, AV presentations, aerospace, industrial, and severe environments. The PowerRack's unique mounting bracket pins your PCI cards at three points to keep them positioned properly regardless of the computer's orientation. Augment your PowerRack G3 with telescoping side rails, keyboard drawer, and monitor enclosure, and you can take your office on the road in a 15-unit rack.
Got a screwdriver and an hour to spare? If so, you can upgrade your current Power Macintosh workstation into a PowerRack G3 workhorse. The PowerRack G3 is designed for Power Macintosh desktop and midtower versions.
Marathon Computer presents the simplest solution for those who need the power of a G3 with the flexibility of a rack-mounted system. The GRack holds securely to the body of the New G3 for easy installation into industry standard 19" racks.
The GRack occupies only 6U of rack space and works equally well with any of the three fixed mounting configurations or the optional telescoping rails.
Installs in minutes! I know, you've heard that before... but installing the GRack is as simple as removing the four handles and replacing them with the GRack... only eight screws. If you get stuck, just follow the instructions.
