Take the guts from iMac and put them in a different enclosure?
Hi folks. I'm happy to say my mid 2007 24" iMac is still going strong. But I've recently bought a new mac and I'm planning on converting this iMac to a monitor using an LCD controller board.
But I feel like there's still some computing life left in this old machine! Do you think it would be feasible for me to take the logic board and the rest of the guts and place them in some other enclosure to keep using it as a server or maybe a wireless time machine?
Clearly I'd have to build a custom box, since nothing inside an iMac is standard sized.
I'd use the iMac's original power supply in the box. Is there any other major thing I'm missing?
Is this a good question?
