    So I have had a Mac Plus collecting dust for many moons - no keyboard or mouse that I can find - and I find out today, I can throw a MacOS emulator on a Raspberry Pi.

    Does anyone know what the physical dimensions of the bezel are for the Mac Plus, and/or an HDMI screen that would fit inside it's 9-inch diagonal? Tricks: I know it must be 4:3 and flat in front so it can sit flush inside the case.

    I have literally spent about five minutes considering this, so I'm sorry if this is the wrong forum or if the question's already been answered.

    Thanks!

    I had the same problem finding a screen, I went for an 8" tft panel 1024x768. It has HDMI and VGA inputs.

    A 10" panel will be just too big and you can't get 9" ones. I used the original glass front of the screen and cut the rest of the CRT away.

    I'm trying to find the details for you but I bought it on ebay and it doesn't save details of things older than 60 days.

    Here's the mod that I did, but I used a core2quad instead, the Pi will fit in much easier! http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1723258

    Sounds like an interesting mod. How about the guts of a Mac Mini in there?
