So- do all of us believe we could design The Better Case? My hub's shop has a few original Compaqs in it - in the original IBM PC case. Vast things. Not just Desktop sized, but Whole Desk size!
If I had any sheet-metal skills at all, I'd have mounted four legs on that cabinet and hinges across the back edge and used it like an old school desk - lift it up like a carhood, crawl inside, change every part and still not have any grease on my elbows! I love those things.
Unfortunately, when I get around blow-torches, metal hole punches and Jaws-Of-Life hydro-presses, I'm usually chasing Hubby around, not playing with computer cases. Wot a shame. He never lets me have any fun.
