Yep I was going for an old-school look. I think the keyboard looks great on it. The yellowed spacebar matches the color of the suitcase and the screen just fits perfectly. I know that LCD's weren't around yet, but I think I could not fit a crt in it.

Nice.
Does it have a battery? If so, how long does it last?
My projects
 - The Lost Survivors (Unreal Engine) ACTIVE [GameCommandoSquad main project]
 - Oxo, with single-calc multiplayer and AI (axe) RELEASED (screenshot) (topic)
 - An android version of oxo (java)  ACTIVE
 - A 3D collision detection library (axe) RELEASED! (topic)(screenshot)(more recent screenshot)(screenshot of it being used in a tilemapper)
Spoiler For inactive:
- A first person shooter with a polygon-based 3d engine. (z80, will probably be recoded in axe using GLib) ON HOLD (screenshot)
 - A java MORPG. (pc) DEEP COMA(read more)(screenshot)
 - a minecraft game in axe DEAD (source code available)
 - a 3D racing game (axe) ON HOLD (outdated screenshot of asm version)

Nope. It has a PC power supply in it. I might be able to make some kind of custom supply so it can work on batteries, but I don't think it'd be worth it. The battery would not last very long because the screen, motherboard and harddisk are not low-power laptop parts.
