or take all the old hardware out and put the latest laptop hardware in it

My friends will be like "Wtf a toshiba satelite running windows vista?!?!?!"



There are some good ideas here btw

You mean an ugly, old looking, big Toshiba Satellite running Windows Vista...
I think I'd rather use new hardware in modern casing...

EDIT: The first old laptop I got was older than the one neodude has. I got bored and totally dissected it, couldn't figure out how to undo some of it, so I started using force and just broke it all up into many pieces... You could save it for a time you are mad to use as something to take you anger out on, lol

I got a Dell laptop w/o a HDD about 233MHz, the screen doesn't stay up, it just flops down. Not sure what I will do with it yet. It works as far as I've tested it.
