    I don’t like to post negative comments, but this really looks like build instructions for a small, silver box of regret. If you’re not careful, you’ll bend your LCD frame… Sadly, the LCD itself does not bend.

    The older TI books have hinge problems. My hinges have broken from normal use on my 15in Ti Book from 2002. These things might be good for adding more support to the weak hinges.
