Step 12: Done!

And here we are, back on the internets, surfing away. You will notice that the overall screen size is diminished. At first I was worried about this too, but after a few days of it I found it barely distracting as I surfed my favorite sites.
<p>awesome, I need to do that </p>
<p>Great way to turn about $1200 of computer into toxic garbage.</p>
<p>Fantastic instructable on how to enhance the laptop's portability with a handle.</p>
Not exactly what I was thinking of...
Great Instructable! Worked perfect for me, but I dropped it the next day and it broke :(
The lap top has two uses now: <br> <br>1. It has a handle. <br>2. it is now a live video camera.
Once you take out the internet from the drill, save it for a project later on.
Very funny!<br> <br> You somehow inspired me for this one:&nbsp; <a href="https://www.instructables.com/id/iPhone-Stand-1/"> https://www.instructables.com/id/iPhone-Stand-1/</a><br>
This is actually an improvement from the other Funny Instructables (Part 1). You used your own pictures with a funny idea that wasn't just weird.
You're a big FAIL. I looked closely at the pic and saw that the power indicator wasn't on at all!!!
That looks like the laptop I'm using right now.
fantastic work! i think i'll ventillate my laptop like this, too. <br />
Bring this to a business meeting. "ARE YOU OUT OF YOUR MIND?!?" You reply, "Maybe, but do u like my new laptop?!?"
Hi I tried this on my new alienware laptop and now it wont turn on any ideas??
o_O GAAAAHHHHH. how could you do that to a laptop!!!!!!
I think he explained it pretty well in the instructable...
lol i have this same laptop:P
This is great! I did ot to my dads plasma tv my mums acer mu sisters ds and my lg kp500
that's awesome! we have the exact same laptop as a display object to sell ergonomic laptop stands at my work. This is much cooler though :P tanx for the laugh :)
I'm glad you liked it. Dave and I had a lot of fun doing it. Sounds like you need to take a hole saw to work and, ummm upgrade the laptops ;)
you know, my boss would probably get a kick out of this too... if you see how many cubic meters of computers and screens we throw in the dump every year, we might as well have some fun with them :P
If you want to put those computers to good use, donate them to the nearest school. Schools are always dealing with ancient computers, mix-and-match equipment, and, well, bad computers. don't just throw them out or recycle them, give them to someone who can extend their useful life. sorry if this sounds a bit harsh, but throwing usable computers in the dump is idiotic. Schools, especially with the recent budget cuts, are short on computers, and some people are throwing them away. I would be very grateful if you would mention this to your boss, or whoever handles the "how many cubic meters of computers and screens we throw in the dump every year, we". Thanks, Jeff
Hi Jeff, thanks for your concern. Actually, the machines we throw out are usually the ones you wouldn't wish on your worst enemy, let alone the poor kids in schools. At this time we're at a point where we got rid of most of the really really old stuff, donated the halfway decent stuff to someone who's gonna take it to Africa, and giving the remainder to any employee who asks. So right now all that is discarded is either some stray ancient machine or broken pcs that are gutted for parts. So it's not as bad as it sounded, although in volume it still amounts to a lot...
Fedora Linux distributors has a sponsored laptop<br/><a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.idealgadget.com/2006/05/25/first-olpc-prototype-the-100-laptop/">http://www.idealgadget.com/2006/05/25/first-olpc-prototype-the-100-laptop/</a><br/>you buy one they donate one to a child in Africa.<br/>

Where do you think a lot of the second hand computers come from? Schools are the most wasteful when it comes to computers.
yeah booooooooy! sweet! ha ha ha. love it, yeah! good one! YEAH
aren't you mr clever
nice joke
i knew sumthing was wrong when i saw the old windows tag on it the wieght ad the stile and the drill
Its a good thing I read completely through this before I did anything -.-
with all the unnecessary junk removed, will my toshiba satellite run faster?
GAHH, well, at least its a dell..
how would you type if you did that? wouldn't it be just a <sub>little<sub> bit hard to type?
Does this work with macbook pro's? I don't know if this is compatible with osx or if I have to have xp? Please let me know since I have started to drill and am about 1/2 way done.
If not then try linux.
Give it a shot with VMware. If that doesn't work just back up your system and do it in Boot Camp.
Does this void the warranty?
man i just did this to My Macbook pro and i luv it even more!! LOL U ROCK!
HAHAHAHAHHA best instructable ever !!
MAN! I have problem with step 12! I can't get my laptop to boot! Can you help me? My parents were asking what I was doing in the garage with my new XPS. Please reply ASAP! I have a home work to finish.
try technical support!
If this was a joke, haha. If this was serious, HAHAHA! But it's a joke.
Not a real Instructable. This is a slap in the face of the spirit of this website. We are checking this to learn how to be more efficient with the things we have at hand, and not "how to break things in a funny way". Let those non-sense to "will it blend". A waste of time looking at that. I'm sure that old laptop had many good pieces that could have been used. What a shame!
Maybe you've found the topic for your first instructable then? "How-To Reuse a P2 laptop in a Meaningful Way" (I took mine to the 100-yard rifle range.) ;-)
God damn, doesn't anyone here have respect for perfectly usable hardware? Xubuntu FTW!
Not making an instructable is a slap in the face <strong>TO</strong> the spirit of this website.<br/>
Hey, if anyone has any extra keys (specifically the 9 key) for that model laptop, <em>please</em> give me a shout.<br/>
