Step 5: Keyboard removal and modification

Remove any screws that hold the keyboard to the top half.  On many newer laptops, the keyboard comes off before anything else, in this case it comes out last.

Next, we are going to cut away the entire center of the top half using a dremel tool and a cutting disk or something like it. Use a file or some sandpaper to smooth everything out.  Be careful, the plastic actually melts and you can get a pretty nasty burn.

Excellent idea! I may give that a try.
Realise this is an older instructable, but what about using a Raspberry Pi or a Cotton Candy linux machine to keep the functionality of the device while still being able to hide things in it? You'd be a little more restricted on space, but it would make it a much more feasable hiding spot
 paina is a fancy way of saying rust, and im sick of you gun nuts trying to sound sophisticated. gus bad....buds good.
iron rusts, copper petinas. its still oxidation of the metal but it would be incorrect to say that it is rust.
What has gus ever done to you? He's a really nice guy. I just LOVE social commentary from potheads...
great instructable, but i thought it was for making a gun case for the laptop. nevermind...
