Remember the original iBook? And we're not talking about Steve Jobs's favorite, Winnie The Pooh. (Or was it Gramsci's Prison Notebooks? We always get those two confused.) We're talking about the classic, colorful clamshell laptop. Well, one loyal customer still has his -- and for this delightful mod he's retrofitted it as an iPad case. We were impressed with how much of a 'near fit' Apple's beloved slate was (along with the keyboard connection kit), although the modder admits that a little work will have to be done before the thing can be closed properly (and without damage to the hardware inside). All in all, we think it's a pretty sweet idea, but then again we have always been suckers for old school hardware. Get a closer look after the break.
