Putting together a 65% scale model laptop! This is an Akimitsu "Mosquito" miniature released for the 10th anniversary of the IBM Think Pad in 2002, based on the classic model 701C computer. And yes, it features the awesome Butterfly keyboard that transforms when you open it!

  • Nearly 20 years in storage and it turns out to be a piece of tat. Just a little out of warranty now. But that keyboard design is so great on the real thing.

  • Ok video. Building a, non-functional, computer plastic model is not worthy.

  • A bit of an off topic question, but have you ever considered reviewing Fallout 3? I know it's far from the oldest game around and I wouldn't consider it retro, but considering you reviewed Oblivion recently, and that being two years older than Fallout, would you ever consider it?

  • Waste of time, effort and money. Now go and build this laptop from scratch, solder all of the major components onto the motherboard, balance all of the tech inside and install an OS, instead of slapping a keyboard on a pointless craptop and then advertising what a wanker you are with a clickbait titled video... You haven't built a thing here pal. Get a grip.

  • Looks like there's room for a raspberry zero and a real screen. This could be an even better display item. Maybe with a reprinted actuator/on off switch for the keyboard and an IR port for a real keyboard.

  • ThinkPads are my favorite line of computers. I have a T430 with updated ram and a few SSDs in it and that already makes it a perfectly capable production machine in 2020. Once I get my i7 to throw in there and a desperately needed display upgrade I may not update again for a decade. Hell, if I can manage to get a GPU setup through the PCI slot then I may never upgrade. They really don’t make em like that anymore. What other laptop from 2012 could you still be using today to do real production work and gaming? Not serious gaming mind you, but it can run Skyrim just fine. Once I have the GPU setup, I will be able to run anything.
