Ever wanted to take fast notes?

Ever ran out of power or paper?

Build you laptop that works without power for less than 1,-€ (approx. 0.8 US$).

My laptop has officially become the most Old-School of them all!

Technically it is immortal now even though it is also technically obsolete :)

Step 1: Materials

1 scissors


Self adhesive blackboard paper

Ha ha ha, love this! So simple yet so effective. All you need to do now is turn my tablet into an immortal encyclopaedia.

Lol! Such a great idea...and I love theconstructor's mod suggestion...then it would be a tablet and notebook 2-in-1!

You could take out all the electronics and replace them with a notebook, so on the outside it looks like a laptop but on the inside its just a notebook.

Nice job!
