I was beginning to think NO ONE would state the OBVIOUS. LOL! I actually
thought about that, but there are several reasons I don't!
1.) It is an ALL IN ONE iMac (See Picture Here:
2.) How would I build the case? What would I use for a Power Supply.
3.) How would I connect the Monitor (leaving it in the case and only
stripping out the computer parts) to the computer (in the new case). I know
the motherboard has a HIDDEN VGA Monitor connection, but how would I wire it
to the monitor itself. **NOTE: I have other monitors, but it would be cool
to have it still working so it looked like it WAS NOT MODDED.

Can you boot from an external firewire drive cage?
Personally, I think you're nuts. I'd rip the guts out and build a
seperate case that will work better for what you need.
