i love that one.

especially like the Morse code (mouse?) and the wooden space bar.

it's all about the details.

I have not seen it running in any pictures, though, so the my skeptic spirit has yet to be calmed.

Likewise. Not to take anything away from it because it's a beautiful creation, but that mod is easily 5 years old by now and I've never seen a single photo of it running.

I hear that guy is working on a laptop mod though. I wonder if that one will work.
(seriously though, I have an HP Pavilion with a known overheating problem due to a design flaw that I'm trying to fix, so I really wonder if it'll work)

I think this could be put under the "models or props" category.

This laptop I'm writing from is heading for that fate. I decided as soon as I saw the pictures and fell in love. I feel that since this machine was such a bargain, it deserves better than to be abandoned when I inevitably upgrade. I have some ideas for how to even make it halfway portable. I'm especially excited about making the screen removable to slide into the chassis for transport. The one shown may have this functionality, but the sparsity of photographic evidence makes it difficult to be certain.

My last modification of any relevance was to build a functional low profile computer out of spare parts and a cardboard box. It still works too, sitting in my room at home.

Very old post, but maybe it can be revived?  Have a look at this working Steampunk laptop.
