Re: Opening and install RPI in a Mac SE/30

Sun Feb 19, 2012 1:17 pm

Hello guys, i was wondering if you could open a mac se/30 and install the rpi, just for fun ofc.

Now how would you make the holes for rpi? and attach the board? Also since it uses a CRT screen how would that go?

you could replace the crt with a current display with better resolution and less power consumption.

Why do you need additional holes for rpi?

If it is just for fun and you don't want to destroy your ancient computer, you could try to build one yourself:

Uhm, you know that the rpi has several holes (or exit's) than the mac has ? for example mini usb or ethernet port.

Hmm, i collect them oldies therefore i was intersting in knowing if this computer could be done for something useful

I was not sure if you ment those ports or holes to fix the rpi somehow inside the big Mac case.

If you remove the mac board from the case, there are all holes uncovered and you can use them without the need to drill extra holes into the case

So - I would use the available holes for network, keyboard/mouse and power supply.

Maybe you need an adapter to get the monitor connected to the rpi...
