they ARE big beasts aren't they. I can't recall teh model ps/2 I have,
but I know that out of me, my best friend, and a loony housemate, only
the loony housemate could lift it using his little finger alone.

Oh, and the ducted air channels inside. wheee!

Any idea what the composite material *is* ?
While some may consider it sacrelige, I'd love to build up a modern
PC inside that case, but I'd need to do some case mods first... :/

Before you all wince, don't worry. I'm all talk. By the time I'll have
