Convert an Old Laptop Into a Monitor with a Build-In Stand
If you have old laptop sitting around that you can't bring yourself to destroy, Instructables user Damutsch has a guide for converting that laptop into a monitor that includes a pretty decent looking stand as well.
Jeff Sheldon wanted a way to raise his massive 27″ monitor to a better ergonomic eye-level as well as a way to clean up and organize the cluttered desk. Since he couldn’t find anything that was exactly what he was looking for he built his own solution with parts from IKEA. A lot of people have negative opinions about the quality of IKEA products, but if you know how to shop the store you can find some great items.
