+ - Computer cases for laptops to power status screens?

Submitted by Smuffe
Smuffe writes: In our office we have about 5-10 old laptops used to power status screens with different numbers. They're mostly just lying on the floor, so we thought about gettings some cases for them or doing some other creative stuff, like putting them in a flowerpot or something. Anyone has any inspirational images from around their office to share regarding this stuff?

Preferably something that can be youtubed. Obviously we thought the best place to ask is Slashdot.
