    A friend of mine's wife drove off with her macbook on her roof. Needless to say the right USB port is dinged, the screen shattered and the left corner is separating from the bottom.

    It still boots. Just installed 10.11 beta on it. External monitor seems fine as does the battery, SSD and power.

    Looking for some ideas to make this into a project computer. Legos? Wood? What would be a good way to turn this into a cool little mac mini?

    if you can make a wood housing for the internals that would be cool

    MacBook Pro in a custom case ≠ Mac Mini

    not if he buys a new led screen and designs a wooden chassis to mimic the aluminum housing of the macbook
