Abstract

This personal computer enclosure accommodates a keyboard, a system unit, a display, printer and disk storage units in an arrangement which is convenient for the operator and yet allows all components to be locked up out of sight. An extendible keyboard shelf 1 is mounted on slides so that it can be moved into position for use as well as pushed back into the enclosure 2 for storage. A shelf 3 is positioned to support the system unit, display and disk storage units. A sliding printer support 4 has an upper shelf 5 for the printer and a lower shelf 6 which accommodates a stack of paper. The horizontal depth of the shelf 5 is somewhat less than the opening through which support 4 moves to allow the free passage of paper from the stack on shelf 6 to a printer on shelf 5.
