|I still have very fond memories of some old machines and will probably pick one up when I come across one - eg the MacSE90 - what a classic!|
I was digging through my office closet and found my old Mac (512k) transport bag -- my first portable that had its own screen and built-in floppy. Forgot I still have that bag even though I sold the Mac around 1987. I only have a couple old PPCs now, practically unusable or even upgradeable as they're configured with Apple's quirky choices of hardware (e.g., NuBus, AudioVision video ports, etc.).
I was thinking of using a classic Mac case for Mini-ITX (and DSL, of course). I've seen some horrid case mods to use flat panels in classic Macs, but I've seen one that retained the old greyscale beauty and classic look by using a monochrome CRT. I may use one of the PPC cases even though it'll mean I can't take advantage of the PCI slots on the Mini-ITX (case is too thin).
