    Thanks, I chose Stainless Steel due to it being heavy which means i won't be chasing my laptop round, but also because i like to buff stuff to a mirror finish too. Yes converting to Aluminum would be good to make a heatsink from the stand however using steel also has the advantage of being structurally more stable.

    As for the Molex Vs USB, after seeking advise from @Mr. Fox i agree with what he said and the risk of frying a USB on this expensive laptop is not worth it. Not only that going to Molex makes life for me easier it means i don't need to solder anything.

    I can't wait to complete the whole thing, yes its complicated however it will be built to last with maintance and replacements being easy to do.

    USB w/ external power supply was the intent not using the ports on the laptop.

    Structurally AL can be as firm as you want with thickness / braces applied to it. If they can make vehicles out of it I'm sure a laptop stand shouldn't be an issue other than the welding method changes needed.

    Just offering suggestions.
