Got an old Macintosh and an old iPad Mini? Combine them for the coolest office toy around!
Check out my blog post: http://blog.fosketts.net/2017/05/01/biggest-clunkiest-ipad-mini-case-ever-old-mac-se/
I ripped the internals out of my old Mac SE and replaced the CRT with a spare iPad Mini I had laying around. I ran the Lightning cable out the back so I can plug it in. The FaceTime camera and Home button are still accessible, but the power button and volume controls aren't.
These grommets are designed to hold the iPad Mini in place using the original CRT mounting holes and Torx screws. The same grommet fits in all four corners, so print four of them. And I left a little slack in the design so you can wiggle it to fit right if needed.
Next step is to connect the existing speaker and a directional microphone to the iPad.
