1987 Mac SE with a new screen lcd, a new system and a new look, ready
for 2016' tasks , computer, mediacenter (Kodi) & gamecenter.

I had an old broken Mac SE in my cellar, I kept it because I love
computers and It's nice, I'm owner of single boards (raspberry, odroid), so I had the idea to make it working.I used the Odroid C1+ cause it had gigabit ethernet and It's a very good board for the price and the use I wanted.

Step 1: Components

Components :

1 Hardkernel Odroid C1+ single board ARM

1 LCD 800*600 hdmi screen

1 HDMI to HDMI+Audio extractor the board doesn't have audio exit and the screen no audio exit either, so I used it to plug the speakers.

1 USB speakers

1 Sandisk mico SD 16 giga

1 Paint bucket & marker pen for deco

1 O.S Gamestation Turbo for Odroid debian jessie modified or others O.S compatibles of you choice

1 A black Gamepad 1 × cheap laser mouse

1 logitech MK 220 wireless keyboard

1wifi dongle

Wires & plugs.

Step 2: Disassembling

I didn't have the famous "Tox" screwdriver so I had to destroy the top with tools and remade it later with plastic paste.

WARNING : Be extremly careful for the disasembling as the CRT is very dangerous (high voltage), I searched and find instructions on the web to do that.

http://www.jagshouse.com/classicrepair.html for exemple.

I trashed all components...

Step 3: Tests, Contruction

After that I made tests outside the case.I installed a fast and fully functional O.S (Gamestation turbo from
Meveric) for common tasks (web, music, photos), Kodi media center and retrogaming.

I destroy the old mouse but I keep the case and I put a new cheap laser mouse in it.
I made a little modification on the top of the old case to have two buttons for right click.

I made the same thing for the keyboard and I put the MK220 wireless keyboard in the case which almost fit in (little sand the plastic.)

Installed the new system "Gamesation Turbo" from Meveric for odroid, after that I perzonalised the desktop and the icons to look like an old Mac.

Like I said I clean up all the old hardware (not working),

so I had an empty case, I found place to integrate all my new components, plug screen, wires, etc.

Paint, decoration, have fun, that's all.

It emulate old computers (Amiga & Atari ST), video game consoles and arcade games.

I finished it few days ago and it was pure coincidence the 40th birthday of Apple computers, so...

You can watch the demo video.

<p>Awesome retro computer build!</p>
