Mac Plus / Classic iPad Case
Ok this post is really evolving so bare with us here. We originally posted a picture of the iPad in a Mac Plus and that was fun, but then a few readers wrote in with additional pictures and a video of an iPad in a Mac Classic, and finally a full on guide on how to create this great iPad case yourself.
Here’s a screenshot of the guide:
You can also check out a PDF guide so you can see it at a larger size. The PDF is in English but the guide is in Japanese, thanks to plenty of pictures and Google Translate it’s easy to follow though.
A video of the iPad Mac Classic Stand in action:
Here’s the picture a reader sent us of possibly the coolest iPad case ever. Going all out and creating a slot loader for their iPad into the side of a Mac Classic (which has the same enclosure as the Plus) is really geeky but I love it:
It looks actually not too difficult to make. I wonder if anyone will start selling these? Afterwards you could actually sync and use a bluetooth keyboard with the iPad and it’d make for an awesome retro desktop case/stand for the iPad.
Finally a use for that dead Mac Plus gathering dust in your closet! The above picture is what started this all but it’s not following the Japanese how-to guide which creates a much more flush and professional installation. Combining the old with the new, why not stuff your iPad into the Mac Plus’s screen space? You could probably use a Mac SE, SE/30, Classic, or Plus, since they all share the same type of enclosure.
