Technically Qimi / Minerva / Hermes / QL-SD are all expansions within the machine, and some AT keyboard interfaces fitted internally too - but the 'computer' was still the long black brick.
EXACTLY. My first QL is inside a desktop case, with GoldCard, QIMI, Hermes, DIY (controller) 130 MByte RLL Harddisk (with Dirk Steinkopf hard disk driver) AND a 100% compatible QL keyboard (built it myself, cutting all connections on the keyboard PCB, and rewired myself. The cable [very thin] was also self made, "Fädeldraht in Schrumpfschlauch"). But because of BBQL limited to 512x256 in 4 colours :-(
