When Lenovo had its recent Mod Contest, modder Boddaker submitted this gem: A Lenovo A700 IdeaCentre PC with an HD projector built in underneath. The A700 itself is an all-in-one desktop PC with a 23-inch widescreen LCD and slot-loading Blu-ray drive. The projector is attached to the bottom of the unit, so the whole thing can be used as a chalkboard projected onto a wall, among countless other things.
In order to create the mod, Boddaker had to first take apart the A700 and attach the projector. This involved such ingenuity and a PCI-Express x8 extension cable, and it required making room in the A700 by replacing the HD with a SSD, and moving some of the device ports (or taking them out all together).
All in all this is a wonderful idea for a mod, and one I can really see going mainstream. Kudos to Boddaker for making the top 4, hope to see many more interesting mods in the future!
