    Stand in awe of its age.

    I take it that it still works?

    Keep it for another 20+ years. It is like some art - it will be really valuable (to some crazy git like me probably) in 20 years from now.

    I've got to agree, keep it.
    Though if its an absolute choice between chucking it or modding then it looks like enough space for an itx below the screen, be great if you could wire in the current monitor except for the image quality.

    The screen is around the same size as an iPad (9" vs 9.7") so you could definitely manage that one. :p

    I can see the headlines on Engadget now..

    Floppy is 3.5", not the bigger size.

    Widipedia says otherwise, I disagree. WIKIPEDIA HAS NEVER LET ME DOWN.

    Arse!... I liked that idea as well. Oh well.

    I'll definitely keep it... and I'll carry on pondering.
