I have some serious respect for the author of this project, i mean a DIY Laptop ? not many people would develop this sort of project. There are capable people out there but there is so much work involved and no-one likes to work that much. The Laptop based on PICAXE 18X Microcontroller can only handle 256 Instructions/sec and its housed inside a wooden box. Some of you may say that this is not a Laptop, however its nice to call it this way. Schematics and source codes are provided, but i suggest you use a commercial box that looks nicer if you decide to build this project.
