Hey there internet!

Essentially people have been bugging me to start a blog for like 2 months and as you can tell by the existance of this post, i've finally given in.

I have been experimenting with the Raspberry Pi for a few months now and the main project i've done with it is building a robot. but now is not the time to get into that cause its been months and its too late to start a blog about that one. Nope this is a much different project. So on Monday i came to the realization that my MacBook Pro is essentially a done turkey and being a poor student, i can't afford to buy a new one. At this point i figure you're wondering what this has to do with a RPi, so get ready: i'm going to build a laptop powered by a Raspberry Pi! I know it's brilliant right! anyway anyway so getting to the chase, what i'm going to do is strap a battery, RPi and whatever other accessories to the bottom of an Apple keyboard i've got lying around. Minor problem though, my second Pi (the one not on the robot) is uh.. well dead. I expect to get it in the mail tomorrow. fingers crossed

Picture below shows the broken Pi. im just using it for sizing ATM.. also, that's an upside-down Apple Aluminum Keyboard
