I've never attempted a case or hardware mod before, but I have the machines mentioned in the subject line collecting dust. They all are stock except for RAM upgrades and are running fine. I'd like to know if I can salvage parts from the 3 to make one machine that will act as a jukebox running some version of OS X, or to build the clear case mod.

Also, I would like to know if I can use one of the machines to build the electronic newsrack mod seen here http://www.designondeadline.com/digitalnewsstand/index.html.
