MacBook Air Hacked! (Mac Mod)
Proof-of-concept hacked MacBook Air fits under the Apple aluminum keyboard! The hacked Apple computer can even use the new Magic Trackpad as an attachment.
DIY MacBook Air Mac Mod
Hoping to make an all-in-one Apple computer mod, hardware modder Bart adopted the MacBook Air’s skinny motherboard to fit under an Apple aluminum keyboard.

Interesting project. Considering some people still don’t realize Apple’s all-in-one iMac is more than a monitor (“where’s the computer?”), this DIY MacBook Air mod would be a hilarious project to show off.
