This morning I disassembled my old computer from 2001; a p3-800 with 256 MiB of RAM on an intel motherboard with integrated graphics. I had bought the computer from a white box shop at my college. Maybe those things were already common, but I didn't expect to see:
- toolless panels
- toolless slots
- semi-toolless 5.25" bays
- a removable 3.5" cage
- a removable motherboard tray
Was this usual back in the day, or was this case niftier than average
