  1. Hi Monique,
    have you seen electroluminescent sheet before? The sheet is 0.8mm thick and when you apply power to it, it glows. Here's a link to a company in the US
    http://www.microstru.com/Experimenter-Kits.html

    It may be a solution to illuminating the whole laptop screen evenly.

    1. Hi Pepper, that is a great link, thank you! I bookmarked it right away and I will definitely try it. Not on my/this laptop though, because I think it will work how I'm doing that now. But I have plans making and selling mini-laptops in the future with the help/use of some manufacturers and it will be perfect then!

    1. Thanks Ilona, glad you're awake ;) I'm not a genius, but I'm pretty happy with what I thought up for this laptop I must admit. I'll definitely finish this laptop, too much fun and too curious too see the result. But need to put my family and boyfriend first for the moment, so a little more time will be needed, but it will come!

  9. Hoi Monique!
    Wat superrr, je werk aan de laptop!
    vind het
    a. hartstikke orgineel en
    b. ontzettend aanstekelijk hoe enthousiast je bent
    c. hartstikke cool dat je volhoud tot het je lukt.
    Spannend om te volgen!
    ik heb je vorige berichten ook gelezen, maar had er niks aan toe te voegen wat al niet gezegd was.
    Ben ervan overtuigd dat, wanneer je er open over kunt zijn, de allergrootste stap al gezet is.
    Heb er alle vertrouwen in.
    Groetjes,
    Gee

  13. Thanks guys, for all the comments! It may take some time because of family and personal circumstances that keep me from my miniatures, but hopefully soon (and my hands stop trembling when working on mini's, this laptop needs steady hands, that I now don't have unfortunately either)
