Come again? The only change to the outside appearance is 4 screwheads on
the CRT bezel. Hardly a big change. A CRT breaking loose and then
breaking would do a lot more damage to the appearance and originallity
of the unit.
And I am wondering why it's pointless to collect stuff which doesn't
_look_ origianl. Who cares what it looks like? These are computers and
peripherals, not fine art. What's important to me is what it does, and
how it does it. Something that's not changed by re-mounting a CRT.
