Topic: Desktop to Laptop conversion

Hi!

If anyone is interested, I took a lot of pictures when I installed the battery board and the SSD

I did a imgur gallery so I don't put too much pictures in here:

This is not the end result, but one of my favorite images:

The process is simple, but you have to have patience and be careful, specially with the flex board and the LCD.

Hi ballanux,

It looks nice. Did you had issues with the flat cable just below the SSD? Mine is bent upwards, just where the SSD sits.

Re: Desktop to Laptop conversion

The supplied bracket holds the SSD up 5mm from the bottom of the case, which is plenty of room for the FFC to fit without getting bent.

Hi,

If we can't use a 3D printer is it still a way to get a battery holder ?

Re: Desktop to Laptop conversion

Finally I wired together the battery pack and tested that everything works!

I had to flash the gas gauge with pelrun's program, but after that all seems fine:

As you can see I still have to properly place the speakers, I may have to make some custom mounts for that:
