ok megalomaniac i got an idea, but not sure if it will work. ok, my parent's old mac just crashed, it was an older model, iono if you remember when they introduced it with the whole cpu in a half circular dome at the base, and the monitor was connected on top and could swivel around and what not? ill try and get some pics of what im talking about. but, it supposedly only needs a new harddrive, think i could throw that in my car? i'd have to somehow disconnect the monitor, but would that work you think?
