So you find an old Apple IIe case, but the computer parts are long gone…
I like the idea, in a crazy sort of way.
Presently, I have 3 x SBCs on my desktop (two not in any kind of case), 2 x USB Hubs, 3 x USB Disks, a keyboard & mouse, 2 x HDMI cables to 2 monitors, 8 power supplies, 2 power strips and one unholy mess of wires.
Now I’m thinking “What could I do with an old PC case…”
I’ve got a couple of Pentium class boxes I was planning to abandon (after all these years…) and the only offensive bit about them is the power supply fan. With that removed, I could easily fit most of this kit inside one of them. Have a nice little retro looking tower. Maybe even find a way to drive the Floppy or a DVD player… or just leave them there for looks.
Somewhere out in the garage is a minor computer museum of old kit. An Apple IIe, a Plus, a couple of old Z80 computers. Even a Radio Shack hand held computer ( dual CPU! Both 4 bit… so quite odd… one line of text display). Someday soon I need to go through that and sort it into tossers and keepers. Then might be a good time to contact some retro-guys and “make their day” ;-)
