Drive 2 Wii Test Engadget Howto
Engadget’s Ben Heck is back with part two on how-to make a Wii laptop, he writes –

“Hello and welcome back! Last week, in part 1 of this amazing saga, we took apart the Wii, modified the heat sink and desoldered large parts off the board.

Today, in part 2, we’ll reattach some vital components, mount the disc drive back onto the motherboard and create a case design on the computer. This will prepare everything for part 3, where we’ll make the casing and install everything into it. Move out!”Link.
