HackADay.com has the story of the wooden laptop.
as luck would have it, the other day i got a message from asbesto, who told me about a wooden laptop that he made:
Here is my laptop: the “legnatile”; I replaced the plastic shell with a wooden one; it took about 4 months of work, and now it’s lighter than the original plastic shell. A unique piece, ultimate frontier of case modding, joint of natural wood and leather, with high technology. Inspired by “Snow Crash” by Neal Stephenson ? the FIRST real wooden laptop in the world!
