Custom MacBook Tablet Conversion – $50

This MacBook Tablet mod cost around $50 to build. Getting it working required just a touchscreen to be purchased which from what Gizmodo report, it costs $50. Other than that it’s just a matter of soldering bits together (carefully).

The new touchscreen added to the device is basically sunk in to the lid of the laptop. This essentially means that a lot of hacking and cutting up the MacBook needed to be done, but as can be seen, the results aren’t too bad at all.

Check out the video below to see it in action as well as seeing the touchscreen and how the interface works.
