Wired reports on one man's plans on selling barebone upgradeable Macs:

    John Fraser, a 21-year-old engineer from Chanhassen, Minnesota, is finalizing the design for his flat "pizzabox" Mac and hopes to go into production in three to four months. If successful, Fraser will be the first third party to make a Mac since Apple shut down its three-year experiment in clone licensing in 1997.

Fraser's plan includes building the Macs based around official Apple motherboards sold to repair shops for replacement parts.
