    Hey everyone, long time no see!

    The other day my friend gave me a box of random pc parts for my birthday and in the box was a extra dell mini 10v lcd (plastic, hinge, lcd, etc) and a motherboard.

    Im looking for at least the bottom half of the netbook minus the motherboard (since i already have one). Im super tight on cash, but i would love to get this thing running. If anyone has any parts, or a full (possibly broken) one at the right price... pm me :D

    Thanks for looking

    I've got a shell for an Aspire One D250- if you think you can make it work let me know :D

    Would this work for you? $20 ($30~ shipped) may be a little steep though for a hunk of plastic.

    Have a pic of the motherboard?

    Scratch that, I think Kantastic's search skills have put me out of the running- great work, K.

    You will probably also need the palmrest frame and touch pad.

    frame $5.20
    touchpad $6.41

    I was lazy and did not bother to double check compatibility so check that before ordering these.

    With the cost of all these parts plus hdd, ram, battery, wifi card, and any other misc. proprietary part we didn't think of, it will probably be cheaper just to buy a used netbook off this forum or craigslist, then sell the lcd and mobo on ebay.
    I would also suggest converting it into a homebrew nettop, this would be a great machine to embed inside a coffee table or mount underneath a kitchen cabinet.
