What To Do With A Dead iMac?

Above is a deceased member of my collection, otherwise known as my Grape iMac G3. When I got it in early-1999, it was my very favorite Mac, and it being in my favorite color made it all the more cherished. But, one unprotected powersurge in 2001 electrically blew out the monitor, and since I already excavated it for its hard drive and other parts, it’s a mere shell of its former self. So, I want to mod it. More specifically, I want to repurpose it, change it into something creative. There’s always the standard Mac Aquarium…

It’s a workable idea since I have fish, but I already have a working tank so it might be a little redundant. And, truth be known, a whole lot of people have done this mod. I could go the more functional route and make it into a trash basket…

Nah. Too undignified. And not too terribly creative. I was thinking about handing it over to my cat for a place of lounging…


Of the three, I’m rather fond of this one. But, I’m wanting to give it a great deal more thought (including a couple of other ideas I have, which I’ve yet to see done elsewhere) before I commit the iMac to its new life.

What do YOU think would be a fun mod along these lines? (And, yes, any anti-Mac/Apple snarkiness will be promptly deleted before posting.)
