if you want to keep external dry cabinet then might as well keep your computer inside also right? :dunno:
hmm good idea leh...

better still, built the system inside the dry cabinet, then use flexible conduits to run cable to monitor and mouse, then monitor enclosed in a transparent dry box with non reflective glass panel, multi coated. then access the mouse and keyboard via 2 glove compartments like this...
