well, you can always add cold cathodes to a powermac. Its relatively easy and cheap. But you want them to show, so older powermacs, non G5's, will need aditional modding in order to show the lighting off, like a clear panel on the side.

i had an old powerman and i painted it straight silver looks nice... if u want to do a cool mod that looks nice. try painting it ur fav. color and droping a cold cathode in it... not expensive and looks great when its done.
I think the clear plastic side will be very hard to do properly (not to mention a bit pricey).
Cathodes are really easy to work with. There are several different types eg. some with an extra protective layer of plastic (can't remember what's it's called). But basically they are all used in the same way...
They aren't expensive, and are loads of fun :P
