Another old project I just dug up photos for. It's an old PowerBook 1400cs I repurposed as a digital frame. It was really easy on these models; a few screws and the screen flipped right around, making the base the stand. I put it up on the shelf over my TV. The laptop was a donation, and I think with parts this ran around $10 or so. It didn't come with a power brick but I had an extra laying around (which might say something about me.) I put OS 8 on there with a JPEGView slideshow at launch and automatic reboot if the power went out. With a wireless card and shared folders I could manage it over the network. The only real downside was the lower-quality screen on the 1400cs vs. the 1400c.
|I got it with the screen already flipped (bonus!)|
|We can rebuild it, we have the technology.|
|Phase 1: assembly|
|Phase 2: ???|
|Phase 3: profit!|
