Looking for a lay-flat Desktop Chassis, preferably Baby AT, but XT or AT will do, or a XT PSU for an XT clone chassis I have that needs one. Currently my 486 is borrowing the Full AT chassis from my 286, and I've been having a PITA of a time trying to find one that's not on E-bay, over $60, and has $30-50 shipping charges for it. Also I don't really need a six foot tall tower case with six 5.25" drive bays - I don't have enough devices to fill such a monster.

The case does not need a power supply if it's baby AT - as I already have one laying around.

Case can be a Genuine IBM, some other OEM, or a Clone, don't care, does not need to look amazing either (I can fix that myself). So as long as it's AT/XT/Baby AT and preferably a desktop rather than tower.

I have a XT clone case that has a flip top on it that I bought thinking I'd use it and never did. Would that work?

If it has a working power supply, oh heck yes, as my 486 is the computer I tweak and mess around with the most hardware wise. The Flip-Top would make it a lot easier for all the part swapping/upgrading I do to that one. Got any pics? though I'm pretty much already on-board with this one.

It does not have a PSU in it, but I could throw in the one I "fixed" (replaced the innards with an ATX PSU, that was modified to work with AT boards and cases, has the -5V out on it).

There is some rust on it, and it could use a good cleaning, but over all it's on good shape. I'll see about grabbing some pics today, but it looks very much like an IBM 5150/5160 case, though it's a tiny bit bigger and quite a bit lighter.
