I once had an NCR PC XT clone,  that had a built in green screen and so 
was erm somewhat large and needed to people to use.   For a while we did
use it as a corner table - mainly as there was nowhere else to put it.

I did eventually concede that the machine was next to useless and maybe
a sensible unit would be more appropriate so it went to the skip.

"rubbish is not publicly visible "  is the phrase she uses.
