Christmas light controller? Or use it strictly as a programmer.

I have one that looks a lot like that, right down to the amber hercules monitor. I don't want to throw it away because it has a bit of (obscure) historical significance. 286 cpu, 1M memory, 40MB hard drive. Sigh.
I'd just use it to play really old games or use it as a linux terminal

Use it as a centerpiece on the dining room table. It should go great with the taxidermied marmot.

Along with that idea, you could have it play itself in Pong or Pacman continuously LOL *waba-waba-waba-waba-waba-waba-waba-waba*
Ambient lighting!
with (rather repetitive) background music too ! LOL

The new guts idea is simple but charming. Alternatively, find the smallest set of components you can (a Gumstix or Nano-ITX board, an EEEPC etc), and fill the rest of the case with cans of tuna. Then when anyone asks why you have such a big case for a tiny computer you can say "to make room for the tuna!" If you wanted to make an artistic/humorous statement, you could hide some real computer parts in it (false floor, fit them in the monitor or whatever) and put a hamster wheel or ant colony in the case :)
