I've seen something close to it--an old PC stored in a garage next to a
leaking jug of muriatic acid. Most of the copper turned to green dust, but
the packages (ceramic and plastic) were fine.  The zinc plating on the
chassis was gone and the steel underneath was nearly rusted through in
places.  The concrete floor also took a hit.

Cheers,
Chuck
