    Nice idea, but looking at the components I guess it would be a very noisy construction!

      A nice idea, yes. As far as I know, the idea first came to market in 1984 when Apple launched the first Mac, although the PC in the photograph looks more like the slightly later all-in-one PowerMacs or the rather younger (but just as extinct) original CRT iMacs. Prior to then, the `all-in-one’ type of PC was built into the keyboard rather than the monitor (I’m talking about PCs in the broader sense – back before MS-DOS took over, there were lots of different sorts of PC). I expect that there was an `all in the monitor box’ PC prior to the Mac – but if so, I’ve not been able to track it down. Other firms followed Apple’s lead: Amstrad did a nice line in all-in-one jobs like that, launched in 1985.

      So: nicely done, but an old idea.

      btw, all CRTs can be discharged safely, but you do have to know what you are doing. Many are designed with bleeder resistors to discharge them when you unplug (can’t trust off switches any more; many of them are purely software affairs), but these resistors sometimes fail so you should always discharge manually – unless you’ve left the thing unplugged for several days and you’re feeling lucky. Those of us who have repaired old `compact’ Macs have had to find out about such things.

    ever heard of HIGH VOLTAGE…?
    not the safest experiment…

    Jadni rusi vidi sta rade

  6. Crow says:

    Surely the title should be… “Making a notebook into a PC”

    Anyway, it looks like they didn’t use a notebook at all, just a flat monitor and regular PC parts.

    Nice project though…

    Well considering Apple already did this, They would be infringing on patents. Not like anyone cares about that though.

    Necessity is the mother of invention! Alot of thought and time went into this..

    I`am alive!!!!

  10. Kizzle says:

    Making monitor into iMac would have been a better title.

  11. Pros says:

    I don’t believe it.
    Photoshop!!

  12. Bishop Brennan says:

    Cool idea. Not much room for expansion/upgrades however.

  13. Texas1 says:

    Wouldn’t the CRT be susceptible to all of the magnetism of the hard drive and other components?

  14. mybutt says:

    Dumbest Idea ever, in this days people want smaller things what get that when you can buy a real laptop o.0

  15. Boris says:

    Nice idea! In Kazachstan,that is my country, i want to import this jewel of technolodgy. Like the compact computer only need room for the screen. Wow like this invention. Please send me contact information for import at: futurtechnology@import kz

    прикольная штука

    Nice construction indeed………………

  18. timo says:

    Hahahaa! When are they coming out. i want 3 of those ASAP!!!!
