    Going to convert it to an iPad stand for the iPad 5 and stick it next to my G4 cube Kleenex dispenser!

    My only problem (outside of not knowing if I will find an adequate iPad stand to use as a part in the conversion) is that now I have to get the iPad in white instead of in black like I originally planned, first world problems...

    :eek: I can somewhat understand repurposing the iMac, but gutting a Cube to make a Kleenex dispenser?

    And many Cube enthsiasts install the Cube guts in a better-for-cooling chassis (there was quite a cottage industry in them a few years ago, aluminum ones styled like a G5, etc,) so had the original chassis 'spare'.

    I made a bunch of desktop pen/cile, scissors, etc., holders from dead Cube power supplies.
