I have my own preferred 34-key keyboard layout. Is there a way to take the screen and put it where the keyboard currently is? This way I can use the laptop as a tablet (without the touch, of course) and not waste desk space occupied by the unused keyboard.
The rationale for this is a compromise between using my own ergo tiny keyboard and the physical reality of this laptop. Building a preferred keyboard directly into it seems very difficult. There is this project where they successfully hacked a Thinkpad, but I think the clearance for that project was much higher than ours. See this discussion for more details.
I imagine hardware-wise this won’t be super challenging, since the screen only needs some connectors from the board; it should still work if we place it where the keyboard was. But making a good connection between the base and the screen might be challenging?
What are your thoughts? Is there something I missed? Are there any potential pitfalls?
