Case for Model B "Rev 1"?

I've got a couple of old original Model Bs and wanted to get cases for them but it seems a lot of the cases (like the PiBow) are for the "rev 2" which has hole next to the USB ports which the original did not.

Can anyone recommend any cases that'll fit the first generation ones?

Cheers

maybe I'm misunderstanding, but I think that unless the case _requires_ using the 'mounting' holes, then it'll work fine with rev.1 and rev.2 equally.

pibow should be fine, as should 99% of small plastic cases. definitely double-check you're getting them for the original pi though, and not a + or pi2 type...

The PiBow (coupe version at least) requires the mounting hole next to the USB stack.

Lots of the cases don't make it clear though :-(

Under the avatar, you see the link AMAZON store :mrgreen:

Now I'm more for the use of wooden case , as they are more ecofriendly
and more resistant than acrylic enclosure.
