Why settle for a digital picture frame when, in the same wall space, you could mount an entirely functional computer/slideshow player/TV tuner? Lifehacker reader Justin took an old Sony Vaio laptop he wasn’t using and turned it into a wall-mounted computer. Why? Located in his office, it’s finding use as everything from a simple (but hugely more control-friendly) digital picture frame, to a testing ground for apps and other material. A nice, deep frame and matting means you’d never know a fully functional computer is tucked inside at a glance, and there’s room inside for him to cram all sorts of goodies, including a USB TV tuner and dongle for a wireless remote control so the build can also double as a television in his office. Justin notes that every build will be slightly different depending on the laptop you use, but essentially all he did was carefully remove the lid and keyboard casing and carefully turn the screen to face out outward before mounting it into the frame.
