Default Empty Enclosures? - 06-18-2010, 05:30 AM

Does anyone know where to get empty netbooks enclosures or tablet enclosures? It should would make modding a netbook easier if I could find an enclosure to just stick my hardware in.

Empty enclosures for a tablet or netbook are impossible to get that will fit your stuff. What you can do if your unwilling to mod a mini 9 case is buy a project box and build it into that. But to find something thats thin but wide is hard. Try sparkfun electronics. They would be the best site to check i believe.

I've been looking at project boxes too, so i will take your tip. I think the electronics in the Mini 9 could last a long time and would make a great number of mod projects. I only have one so I am a bit nervous to start cutting the actual case.

Someone should make and sell a hard clear plastic template for modding.

Word. I can see if the price is right they would be good for converting netbooks to tablets, visa versa, and other projects that netbooks hardware will be good at.
