    I have an iMac Rev. B (Or maybe A, I'm not sure which, but it's either A or B) that's been lying in my basement for a long time, and I was wondering if there are any good uses for it or mods? It is currently running OS 8.5, as I'm scared to try to run OS X on it. Would it serve any purpose in the future, such as running a server or anything, or should I just leave it there to die. It would be cool to have a use for it as it looks cool. :D Thanks!

    Hmm, sound cool is this one of those first gen iMacs? with a CRT screen? Set it up as a home server maybe?

    The old cliche fish tank comes to mind if you are afraid to plug it in.

    If you are daring, this is really cool, but not very cost effective. you could do it with the basic parts and some tools but it wouldn't look as cool. Just thought that it was a very creative use for an old iMac.
