Hi,

I've been snooping around the forum checking what i could do with my Alpha. I had an idea but had to figure out if it was possible. Then found the posts about the 30 pin screen pinouts and 8.4v battery's so i knew it could be possible to make a (semi) modular laptop, which to my knowledge hasn't been done this simple with of the shelf parts.

Now I've almost finished my project i wanted to share the result.
After lurking on the forum for a few days my guess is you guys can easily figure out whats going on from looking at the picture.
Oh and yes everything works but haven't hooked up the power button in the picture...

Im rewiring the BMS. I need it extended and dont own the proper tools to handle the small pins in the plug.
