    I'm no pro hacker, or a technology buff. what I am, is crazy enough to attatch a much larger lcd screen to a psp, throw on a keyboard, and call it my computer. no, I haven't done it, but I'm sure I can.

    there are websites that feature raw lcd modules(basically the same as the psp screen) in a much larger size than the psp, and I'm sure with proper adjustments, you could attatch it to a psp and have it work flawlessly, and without even disabling your original psp screen. and with the support for ir keyboards that has become endlessly popular with phat psps, I find it ridiculously easy to dream up a psp that operates much like a computer, you could even get linux onto the damn thing. but what i'm looking for is more suggestions, and some people to explain to me the obvious holes in my concept cause right now I'm too damn blind to see them. but really, with a little effort an patiants, it could work, but it needs to be taken to a much greater extent then hardware mods, cause that's really all i can do.

    Are you that desperate for a computer? And i wouldnt really call it a computer running psp firmware even with the pda homebrew lol. Linux blows without a Memory Management Unit.

    it's not about desparation for a computer, clearly I'm on one now, and I have enough money to buy a laptop, I just feel like I should idk, do something ridiculous and unbeleiveably unneccessary. and this is what I came to, anyway, it'd be a complicated setup I'm sure, and running linux on a psp can't be hard, I mean, seriously, my uncles got it running on a wireless router, and that my friends is truly uncalled for.

    If that was directed at me, no, I wasn't being sarcastic...the forums at benheck are full of people that make hardware do things it was never intended to do...good site, great info, helpful people...
