Problem is to find a decent 13"/14" screen, why are those thing so damn hard to find???

Oh and: how about a microwave

Guys? You have any idea? I'm stumped here...

13 inch, 14 max, LCD with DVI or VGA output.

ARGH!

Dude, do you realize how much carefull planning this thing takes?

One mistake and I can throw, oh I don't know, about 500 bucks (just a rought estimate) in the trash!

First rule of Casemodding is: Planning, planning, planning!

Ok as dor the screen THIS seems to be the only option...

*edit* I bought a Dremel

it's already been done, I'm just improving the basic idea.

Oh and I have an idea for the screen, instead of building it into the lid, I'm gonna make a 'slide out' system so I can use a slighty bigger screen. (15" maybe)

Get a decent power supply (not less than 600W) if you want to have powerful video card and processor
