Meet Pi-Top, the First 3D Printed DIY Laptop Based on Raspberry Pi

Just when you thought you couldn't make computers any cuter than tiny custom-molded cases for Raspberry Pi, there comes along the Pi-Top. Announced as an IndieGoGo project that's soliciting your two-cents literally, the Pi-Top is a DIY laptop kit that's mostly 3D printed. As part of the package, you not only get a 3D printed laptop chassis of your choice, but also its STL files, so you can mod and print your own chassis to suit the week.

Other components of the kit include a Raspberry Pi with three expansion modules (laptop power management PCB, HDMI to LVDS bridge PCB, and keyboard+trackpad controller PCB); a 13.3-inch LCD panel with HD (1280 x 720 pixels) resolution, a battery, a USB 802.11 b/g/n + Bluetooth 4.0 WLAN controller, a keyboard and trackpad, a DC wall plug, and a piece of paper with a URL to an online video tutorial on how to put the thing together. Drop a few coins here. There are countless free ARM Linux distros you can drive it with.
A video presentation follows.
