    I would so try that if I had a plastic vacuum former. you could take the metal pieces off the old case and melt/glue them into the new, clear one. :D

    This comes up every once in a while, usually after the movie "Hackers" is re-run somewhere. Angelina Jolie ("Crash Override") had a clear plastic laptop in the movie, iirc.

    Why don't you buy a new one or even do the same thing I did with my crappy averatec laptop?

    You probably must be wondering what I did... well...

    Lets only say my dog had an exotic meal... made mainly by plastic and some eletronic components... hehehe.

    Actually, I'm kidding.... except that my dog really ate my computer! That was serious... I've even opened a thread about it here:

    Angelina's character was Acid Burn, The guy Dade was Crash Override and it was he who had the clear cased laptop. Any clue who made the one from the movie?
