Maybe this should go in hardware hacks... (Any one seen this anywhere?)
There's no reason a 17" iMac can't be rackmounted in a sort of 2U drawer kind of thing, where the iMac (sans cool stand) slides out and a secure hinge (mounted back top of iMac) with the help of gravity allows the cpu to face forward out of the rack. Yes, it needs plenty of give on any cabling, perhaps some crude spring spool to tidy them up when you lift up the iMac and close the drawer, which should be a real locking drawer to protect the CPU, the LCD from something falling on it, but also have vents (fans?) in just the right spots.
This is interesting, but I'm talking about a brand spankin' new intel 17" iMac... there should just be a kit for this...
a little help, plz
