About a year and a half ago, I engaged on an admittedly quixotic project to build my own laptop. By I, I mean we, namely Sean "xobs" Cross and me, bunnie. Building your own laptop makes about as much sense as retrofitting a Honda Civic with a 1000hp motor, but the lack of practicality never stopped the latter activity, nor ours.

Quite, quite amazing.

The whole thing is ugly as sin, yet beautiful to behold. I love it!

Not only that, but the ThinkPad keyboard!

My only request would be a bigger screen, but I'd definitely take one.

I may be wrong, but I think that's the same resolution as the Chromebook Pixel. It would be awesome if a Pixel LCD panel and touch screen were put into a future revision, assuming it's compatible and cheap enough.
