WTB: IBM 5150 Portable case/PS and keyboard

After getting that email from the guy that wanted the Osborne to turn in to
a 'portastudio', I got an idea.

I'm going to be going to college in a couple years, and doubt I'll have very
much space (especially in the car I have) to lug my full-size tower PC and
21" monitor back and forth every semester. I was also sorting through my
parts boxes, and found I still had a 9" VGA monitor (mono) that I thought
blew out, a 386 board, and a PS/2 Model 25 keyboard. What I'm thinking of
doing is getting an old 5155 case, and keyboard, putting in the VGA
tube/video guts, and replacing the keyboard with the Model 25 keyboard,
since it's smaller. I'd then take that computer to college, since I'd
basically be doing word processing (word Perfect), and a bit of web
browsing/email (Arachne).

I'm not looking to pay much for one (probably between $15-$20), and all I
need is the case and keyboard. If anyone has one with a blown monitor or
something, let me know.
