I got thinking my Acer d250 wasn't awesome enough with it's 2 gigs of ram and external drive. I have a cheap tabet for it but it's not enough Ither. I wanted a net book with some ease of use. i don't mind the key boards, I would perfer some thing simpler. maybe a joy stick for GTa.. I'm stoked Sanandreas at least can play on this thing.
it can emulate and play some older games. it still can run Flash witch I live out of, and it's slow with it but not to bad. it's good at handling the lighter stuff. I want lighter inputs. So First I sent off for some Parts, Touch screen Passive resistor and a usb controller. I've got a few cases drawn for this already to cut templates for.
I started by making a paper mock up and sized out some things. I want to wait for a wile before opening up my note book. there are a few things on the way first. I don't have a joy stick. the Touch screen is coming in the mail in a few weeks. well I am starting this thing, so I decided to make a stab at the case now before I rip open or wait to see parts... I have the plans do I have the plastic? ah what do I have kicking around.. Magnifying plates!!! Yeah we found these things. those big old Flat ribbed plates that make your face huge when you look through them...
That's what I'm going with, well that's what we are going with. Chelsea lends a hand with some bits of this one, she bought 4 plates to help me on this one. I've still cut the hole thing out of the plains I drew up. I've still got to glue in screw posts for scraped electronics shells. This is going to look allot sharper than I have done in a wile.
