I’m amazed at how many people are willing to chop up their brand new toys. Take [edahc]‘s brand new MacBook Pro. He decided to mount a Sony Puppy FIU-600 fingerprint scanner in the case. The device is powered directly from the DC board. I think the MacBook Pro may actually lend itself more to these types of modifications than most laptops because of the large flat metal surfaces on the case. More so than say your standard lumpy plastic Dell.
