Acer looking to launch super thin laptop with ‘touch keyboard’ this year?


Apparently with a bit of geek know-how, a 1984 Macintosh can run OS X Snow Leopard. Who knew? Best of all this is something that nearly anyone with some determination and Google skills can do. The hardest part is probably locating a 1984 Macintosh.

Now I must point out that this instructable doesn’t tell you how to get Snow Leopard to run the original hardware. That would just be wacky. Oh no, it guides you through how to carefully deconstruction an original Mac and install brand new hardware including a USB screen and USB port. But it doesn’t seem that hard. Give it a go and let us know how it turns out.
