I had an article (Good Old Boat??) about building your own computer onboard. The author had built a computer into the space he had and hence did not the case to worry about. Generally there is a lot of space of a sailboat but it exists in small to medium sized chunks that are often oddly shaped. If you build in the computer you might be able to use some of these spots - works well at a chart table.
Current usage I am not so sure about, but I think the author of the article had found a 12v computer system somewhere so it saved relying on shore power or a genset or inverter.
Back home on Lake Ontario after something over 36,000 nm circumnavigator. Not surprisingly there is a lot of stuff I want to get done on Ainia both cosmetically and functionally. Getting an early start so it will be ready to go for next summer (Lake Superior?).
