Commodore 64 laptop from the House of Heck

The irrepressible Ben Heck has come up with another gem, this time in the incredibly old school shape of a Commodore 64, only now it’s a laptop. It’s got the best part of all the original innards, minus the odd bit shaved off to actually get it to fit into foldable form, and sits pretty, if clunky, with a 15″ LCD and original on/off rocker switch on the side.

Take a look at BH’s site for a better glimpse of how the magic happens but personally my favourite touch is the use of beige to really give it that 1980s computer effect. Good work once again, Mr Heck.
