Create a wall mount pc out of an old laptop

I saw this on LifeHacker originally, where it caught my eye as a project I could easily do with all the spare hardware I have laying around, most of it which has little to no value but still functions correctly. Head over to Glowview to give the original article a read.

wall-mount pc

I’m especially fond of this idea, as I have 2 things working in my favor:

  1. A brother-in-law and a father-in-law that are professional framers. SCORE!
  2. The number of used laptops I have laying around that are missing plastic parts that cost a fortune on eBay or the number of laptops I have laying around that need new batteries. I currently count at least 3 that I could do this with. SCORE!

If I decide to do this I will have a follow up post to show off the work. Now if I could just make it touch screen too, that would make it that much cooler. I suppose I could slap a bluetooth dongle in there and use my HTPC keyboard or something similar (maybe a gyro mouse?).
