    This time I'm making an HTPC case using acrylic and veneer. Electronics come from an old HP laptop, but this can be easily adapted to pretty much any hardware.

The top of it should have be the laptop screen. Think... It can have like.... the... time or something. Be used when doing some movie watching in bed

You should have just put the veneer on the outside of the laptop.

It's a very different take on the same subject. You can say that everyone who build a computer in a YT video is copying whoever made a PC build video first.

2 Things. First off, It looks good, but an idea for next time, instead of the open hole that you have there you can cut apart the side of the laptop shell with the port holes & the power button then fabricate a pannel using bondo or something similar that will fit into the existing hole. it'd save you the time from trying to figure out then cut out something from scratch. Second, for all the people bashing the video, i honestly don't know what you people were expecting. yes, you literally can just take your laptop and plug an hdmi into it straight to your tv, he made a case for the laptop to make it more aesthetically pleasing than a broken laptop sitting next to your tv. Now hear me out. if you wanted something super duper amazing either buy it or build it.

1. That's a good idea... but as I've got a 3D printer since then, I'd definitely designed and printed an IO bracket. 2. I'm really glad that someone gets it! :D

Clicked on this because of the name, and found it utterly lacking. Not an instructional, no info on integrating the computer into the case beyond just plopping the motherboard down in there, refusing integrating the power button into the case, nothing about maximizing cooling. It's just about the aesthetics of the case, nothing else.

You could also say that Matt copied my DIY desk PC idea in his latest video. But while the basic concept is the same, the execution is quite different. I'm taking a very different approach in this project and the final product is also very different. Inspired by DIY Perks? Yes. Copying - no.

3:28 tip, use masking tape or normal tape (with some dirt/deberi or dust, so it is not super sticky as in your case, the wall is really thin)

You made something stylist and useful from what would have been more e-waste. It proves that just because something is old it is not useless.

I'm surprised you didnt make a custom enclosure for around the ports. An open backend like that will allow dust that will most certainly bridge connections.

That would take hours to make back then, when I didn't have a 3D printer.
