On the Fake Mac:
I had looked at a lot of tutorials online, and there’s a particular 9” lcd from the ipad2 that fits. I would have gone for CRT but the only 9” SVGA CRT is black and white and I couldn’t source one in time, I wanted to finish the project while I was motivated.
Here’s everything that’s on the inside. I just copied the measurements from the metal frame in there originally and made it out of acrylic. The SD card reader fits perfectly inside part of the original floppy drive cutout.
The motherboard and original CRT are on a shelf, perhaps with a recap and troubleshooting they can be brought back to life.
Very cool thanks. Those old macs actually have a really nice form factor for a self contained emulation station. It looks great with the LCD, I wonder how much more period correct it would look with a CRT replacement too. I'm sure you'd lose some clarity, but might gain some hallmarks of a CRT that those games would have been displayed on at the time of release...
