I just saved a 4000 from being recycled that is just as bad as that one, although mine has about a 1 inch strip across the bottom that is almost pure white.  It must have been pushed up against something for years.

I might just have to tower this one.  Does anyone have a Zorro/ISA Buss board with 2 video slots for sale at a reasonable price?

I would love to make a Toaster Monster tower with it.

Like a keyboard for example?

Vesalia sell faceplates and other case components so I guess one should really be concerned about the inner parts and not the looks of this A4000.

If it's that bad I'd say it's time to replace the facia or paint it!  

I agree, the main thing is weather it works or not - just never seen one quit this yellow before.  I'm not really fussy about appearance, honest :-D

The thing I don't get is, they've found a type of plastic/paint/colouring procedure that doesn't suffer from the 'yellow' effect, why don't they use it instead?  (look at the CD drive, etc).

The PC keyboard I'm using at the moment, I've had for 5 years.  The plastic frame is going yellow, but the keys are still white.
