Not really production related but I guess some of you might appreciate this. My current laptop is basically worthless as a laptop and sits permanently on my desk. The battery last 20 minutes, the speakers and dvd/rw are broken and it has to be run in an aircon room because of the overclocking I'm using! Since I use it with an external keyboard and mouse I find that the laptop keyboard/trackpad gets literally no use and makes the screen further away from my eyes than I'd like it. This is especially annoying as it's a 17" screen running at 1920x1200 resolution so it's hard enough reading what's on the screen anyway! So my plan was to turn the laptop into a sort of imac or digital picture frame. If you check this website you'll see that there's quite a lot of people that have already done this but I hadn't seen any of that until after I'd taken a screwdriver to my laptop. Anyway, here's a pic of how I'm getting on: I'm using it like this at the moment because I haven't built a support/stand for it yet. It's already miles more useful like this though - it feels like a normal desktop pc monitor. The stand I'm designing is gonna cover the screen edes and the cables that'll hang out of the bottom so it should look pretty professional when it's done - something like this with a bit of luck, except with a base so that it can stand on its own like an imac. Once I've got it all done I'm gonna retire it as my studio pc and use it just for internet/movies/itunes and maybe as a dedicated vsti / spectrum analyser pc. Unlike a lot of these sorts of mods mine is fully reversable - I'm not messing with the casing or dismantling anything... just rotating the screen and putting the whole thing inside a new case. Anyway, yes, I'm a geek, but apart from that, thoughts?
