Slot load mod

Recommended Posts

Nice mod.

What drive is this? (give more details)

 

I had pulled it from a dead macbook a few months ago and just recently found a faceplate for it but u can buy the whole thing complete on ebay. http://cgi.ebay.ca/A...=item5d26d25070

 

Juts took the front panel and cut the corner ( dremel and sandpaper) so the device removal mechansim could still work then reassembled. It's definitely a nice touch in making it more mac like.

 

I also swapped out the mini pci wireless for a Broadcom N I pulled from another macbook. http://www.broadcom....ions/BCM94321MC .. nice having N as well.

Nice mod.. I had tried that some time ago but the drive wound up being defective (the macbook was smashed and then ripped in two. from what they told me Jealous girlfriend) then there was that ugly hole no faceplate :(

rofl! I've seen a few of those too. One where the wife threw the laptop at hubby. Something or other about facebook messages from an old girlfriend! *snicker* The poor computer always pays the price!

 

Pretty sure u can find the slotload drive on ebay with a faceplate. I think there was a model of Acer that had a slotload DL drive as well.
