This work & page is still under construction... so I hope you will come back even after reading it
After long searches in my old-school-laptop quest, I found a Graal ;) a PowerBook 165c which has the required dimensions for my project of doing a laptop case for the PCDuino & a 7inch TFT screen....
If you don't know whats a PCDuino, nor don't understand why this page is titled "Another Laptop..." see my previous work.
As in my previous post : I started to empty it (& saving it's original parts aside).
I was looking for an old laptop because it generally has a small screen size and bigger base board than slim netbooks of todays.
I started to modify the case in order to adapt an USB keyboard originally designed for a tablet.
As it is already USB wired, it simplified me the task about constant pairing as with my previous BT keyboard
Now, it is not yet finished, but it looks more as a laptop than my previous project, (even it's no more a funny easter egg),
I'm more satistified of this new design.

Today, I finished to shape the upper part of the case,
with its screen mask and keyboard panel
On the that side, U can see what the bottom part wil contain :

Today, I nearly finished the 1st version of my new laptop,
it's now closing & fully functional : battery, screen, sound (w/ internal speaker), microphone, keyboard, wireless mouse, WIFI & BT.
Some plugs are still inside the device, I have to make some holes for those.
So still some work todo ! :)
but It nearly looks as I want ...
