Casemod adds a projector

Meet the Sensei, a modified Lenovo all-in-one desktop PC with a projector built in.

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!

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
