A home theatre PC is a great way to keep all your movies and TV shows in one place, but they can sometimes be unsightly. Lifehacker reader Leslie Norman Harvey V shows us how to mount a laptop to the back of the TV for a completely invisible, functional home theatre PC.
While a cheap Apple TV or home-built system is ideal for a home theatre PC, an old laptop will do just fine and won't cost you a thing. All you need to do to mount it is grab a few angle irons, fit them into a little box for your laptop, and mount it using the screws and holes you would use to mount your TV to the wall. You'll want to make sure it isn't too heavy for your TV, of course (so-called gaming laptops need not apply), because you don't want it to tip over -- but if it's light enough, it should hang perfectly on the back of your TV, staying hidden from the rest of the living room.
