      I've been saying for months that the iPad is what Steve Jobs wanted the mac to be in the beginning: an information appliance. This photo perfectly captures that theme.

      Much cooler than an aquarium. I shudder at the number of good toaster Macs that have been sacrificed.

      Also congratulations on having this photo used on Consumerist.

      I have a gutted Mac Plus that I originally intended for a Macquarium 10 years ago. I wonder if this would be a better use. Maybe integrate a dock. Unfortunately I don't have the original keyboard from the Mac Plus.

      You can always put one of those cheap digital picture frames in there. That would be pretty sweet. I have a Classic with a severely miscolored case I have been meaning to transform.

      That's no Mac Plus, it's either a orig Mac 128K or a "Fat Mac."

      Awesome!

      One cool thing is missing... add an iphone Icon to your iPad and your friend will freak out (or not ;-)

      Blown away that's sic man! It looks retro futuristic which is what Apple is all about!

      @blakespot, Good Eye. You're partially right. Upon closer inspection that is not the front bezel of a Mac Plus. The back half of the case is definitely from a Mac Plus. In my giddyness of the first day with an ipad I must have switched the bezels and grabbed the front of the 128K. So this would actually be an iPad + 128K + Mac Plus.

      For maximum nerd points you should run this aquarium app on it www.serenescreen.com/product/marine-aquarium-iphone/, so it looks like one of these www.theapplecollection.com/Collection/MacAquarium/index.s... :)
