    Need ideas

    hi guys. I got a broken screen on a 10.1" netbook but it still works well. Any of you ever transfered the main board and stuff into a case or a project? I dont want to dump it and the screen cost most than the value of the netbook itself. Thx :)

    Post your dumpster find.

    Ok guys here's the deal. Spring is here and lot of people will get rid of their older eletronics since summer is coming and major stores try to liquidate their leftover from last christmas stocks. If you ever find something nice in the dumpster then you post it here even if it's from past years.
