I recently saw one forum user post his/her clever reuse of old PC speakers to hide their Pi.
Speaker removed of course

some good examples there.
i was just wondering whilst on my pc looking around the room ive got boxes all over PVR SKY xboxes playstations just though about the v6 box as its big enough to fit 2 or 3 hard drive in the top if i take all insides out and its also got its own fan i can use on the pi and io display at back already cut out

i may need to cut afew holes or slots for sd card and power but i think it would be a handy sturdy case for the pi and hard drives
