Toteable PC Is Inspired By Macs Of Days Gone By

Back in the 1980s, the individual laptop was a hip new matter, and the kind this new technologies would take was still up for discussion. Back again then, all forms of unusual clamshells, breadbins, and all-in-1 patterns hit the market, with the Apple Macintosh proving to be a successful illustration of the latter. Encouraged by the Macintosh 128K that served as their very first laptop or computer, [Arnov Sharma] decided to whip up a modern all-in-one of their very own.

It’s nicknamed the LATTEintosh, as it’s built around the Latte Panda 3 Delta. This is a single-board computer with an Intel Celeron N5105 CPU, 8GB of RAM, and 64GB of eMMC storage on board. It’s capable of running full-fat x86 operating systems, and here, it’s running Windows 10.

The enclosure is a custom 3D-printed design of [Arnov]’s own creation. It sports a 7-inch HD monitor, fans for cooling, and speakers integrated into the case. Naturally, it’s got a handle on top to make it easy to carry, just like the Macintosh all-in-ones all those years ago.

There’s something to be said for a computer you can just pick up and carry away, and we love the boxy form factor. Sometimes a laptop simply won’t do, and we can imagine many engineers and technicians out there appreciating a build like this. We’ve seen some great all-in-ones before, too. Video after the break.
