One of the hands-on projects for CompTIA A+

A guy came into my computer store once that did visual mods for PCs. He'd take the harddrive and cut the top off to replace it with plexiglass. He did it all in a sterilized environment to protect the drive. In the end you could watch the plates spin and the read-arm move across, pretty neat.
