    i think itd be more like less for it...but thats just me.

    if I was buying this as "Art" (notice the capital A), i would certainly expect to pay for bullet holes and tire marks.

    Alas, tis not that day....


    I have a pet project, a headless mac portable is my best bet, which is why i asked for busted ones cuz typically its the screen which I aint gonna use anyway. but I also can fix some hardware issues...so anything is worth a shot.

    in the end, im trying to stay cheap as I cant be cheap on the touchscreen for the project...

    ah, so no use for a 100% working one...but i can't even shoot it...that's no fun. Throw me some prices, okay? I wanna see how cheap you're talking about. If its too cheap., i'll see what i can do to help you in getting something.

    I was looking to find G3/G4 (g4 preferably) 12/13" ibook/powerbooks.

    to go into my pet project.

    beggars cant be choosers, but with all the measurements so far, the small laptops are my best bet.

    and since i dont need the LCD, a cracked/broken laptop is better as it brings the price down.

    I was trying to spend under $200...

    Imagine a Nintendo DS, the "halves" of which are the size of a standard laptop keyboard.

    This image is a mockup I have found on another forum, I DID NOT CREATE THIS PICTURE, but the person had the same idea I have, at least form factor wise.

    Id be taking a 12" portable, chopping off the trackpad area, removing the optical (unless there is space) and moving all the innards and battery so they can all fit underneath the keyboard.

    a 7"/8" widescreen TS completes the project and is sized to close, like a Nintendo DS, in perfect harmony.
