PC Mods: Making a Steampunk Mini ITX Laptop

My first original computer

This design comes out of frustration and I hope one day we will see a case that takes the idea from mine and allows people to bolt together their own laptop in a weekend and not have to spend days in the shed annoying the neighbors with my angle grinder and learning how to weld aluminum like I did. There are 'bare bones' kits from some manufacturers, but to get a similar spec to mine, you are still expected to pay around 1500 to 2000 pounds, or worse!
