    We purchase laptop computers and many components for greater than scrap value. We offer a shipping reimbursement program.replies

    It's an older machine (Specs sheet on the monitor shows a Pentium 4), but I don't see the point of doing it. It's neat, but the above poster is right- there's no way that I'd spend the hours to do that

    Still, though, it is unique....

    some people practice on cheaper materials before making the expensive version.

    some people get bored one day and use whatever they have laying around
    Currently looking for a job in or related to scrap/recycling. Relocation is possible for the right offer.

    That would make a nice testing station,looks like it would be a lot easier getting parts in and out.
    Did you have to cut out a spot in the back for the expansion cards?
    Nice work!

    oh wow I wish I could find the thing I was reading about so I could post the link but its been like 2weeks.
    this guy took a old console tv and gutted it out, and used a tinted glass for the front to have it look like the old glass was in there and had the 75in tv on top of it so it looked like what we have all seen and possibly done before is not to ever move it just put the new one on top lol, but oh no power comes on and so does the lights and boom it show inside the tv a master setup gaming rig with plenty of space for everything including liquid cooled lines and so forth and everything everything wireless so you can sit across the room. I will keep looking for it to try and post the link

    Yes, I cut out the space for the I/O panel and PSU fan. Bolted in brackets for the PSU and HDD. Wired the front LEDs and switches into the spots where the TV's knobs were. I'm either going to put plexiglass in the front panel or put an actual LCD screen in.
