    Yeah saw that on Digg. Kinda cool but seems like a bit of a waste too.

    It'd be fun to do. Wonder if I could find a broken one.

    I'm really wondering how hard it would be to do. I could pick up a shitty condition Macbook with a C2D in it, and it wouldnt matter what condition it's in so I could get it cheap.

    How hard is this to do? The guy's site isn't TOO detailed.

    I was browsing ebay for a minute yesterday. Found a macbook with a broken screen for $300+ with a day or so left. I'd like to try this, but I don't want to pay that much.
