What is the size of the "Macintosh Plus" screen. Is it around 10"

I think I will take one of these computers and pull apart and put a 12" ibook into it to see if it would work. I have two of these computers and been wanting to mod one for something. Thought about a fish tank, laptop computer.... not sure.

Perhaps another idea for a mod ??

It was 9". I don't know if a 12" iBook screen would fit, but it would be pretty funny to see OS X running on a Plus!

It seams to me that instead of using an iBook it would be easier to use a Mac desktop of about the same spec's. Just a thought tho.
Heck I might try a project like this.

You could use a mac mini and a small ~9" LCD, or even stealth it and find a 9" monochrome CRT monitor to replace the original apple one. If I had the resources I'd definitely do something like that, but I'm settling with the eMac for now.
