Reading through more of that site, that guy has done some amazing machines. He must be extremely rich though to afford all those consoles and then convert them to something else.

And he must have lots of time. For me it's faster to wait a year, until i find, what i want, than to start soldering.

It would be a rather large laptop simply because of the size of the motherboard. It could be done but I believe it would be more compact if someone was able to cut the board in two and connect them together via ribbon cable. Then again, who want to take a chance on killing a Falcon.

That guy could probably succeed but even folding it in half wouldent it be slightly thick?

You would kill your Falcon! Don't even go there!

I seem to remember Coda saying that there were *six* layers of tracks and circuitry buried within the mobo, so it's not just about what you see on the surface.

Maybe a widescreen laptop would be possible ;-)

Actually, when you look at the size of modern widescreen laptops, a falcon one would be more or less comprarable in size, laptops now are getting bigger and bigger again, they make the STacy look practically dainty.
