Ok guys.. here we go...

I am Going to be modifying the Toshiba satellite pro a300 laptop. yes thats right. a laptop. you may indeed call me crazy, maybe so ambitious, but by :) or high water i am doing this!! 

 

The plan:

 

sooo modding a laptop i much more complex than a tower mod (no offence to the custo tower builders, y'all lovely people). you have to rip apart components like the batteries, create custom mounting hardware; it gets complex :D

 

i think its a good idea to lay out a plan:

 

create the back of the monitor housing

paint said housing

install the wifi antennas in the housing with the screen

create front plate and hinge covers

create the base of the laptop 

paint said mainboard

create mount points for the mainboard and screen hinges

upgrade the mainboard with a new processor and (maybe) new ram

install the mainboard in the base

install new drives into the laptop

create a top plate with mounting points for power lights, trackpad, power button and keyboard

install the battery after testing the grounds of the mainboard

install the top plate

install a tri boot os setup :P

 

i think this is a good outline... wish me luck :D
