Few weeks ago I blogged about the idea to make OSHW Laptop based on Allwinner A64 64-bit SoC.
Today we received the first samples of the laptop plastic body.
The quality of the plastic parts is very good!
As you can see we have already sourced the plastic body, the battery, LCD display, keyboard, touchpad, speakers, camera, microphone and all fittings.
What’s left is to design the motherboard to fit inside the plastic body.
The feeling of building your very own laptop by yourself is incredible.
Every one can go to the shop and buy laptop, but to build one with your hands, and to know every component inside is different experience.
We start seriously thinking to make Do-It-Yourself kit version where you get all components and instructions and can build your laptop.
Why not choose different boards with different SOCs and configurations which you put up to your choice.
These who come to the Help Day this Saturday will be able to touch for first kits, we have one in White and one in Black.
Crossing fingers to may complete the mother boards to show at FOSDEM in January 🙂
