Lenovo Displays Awesome Arcade Laptop Mod

A few months back we spied a blinged out Lenovo at CES Unveiled in New York City. After poking around on the Web, we learned that it was part of a mod-contest run by Intel and Lenovo called “What’s Your Idea of Fun?” and that Lenovo was sending the winners to the world’s biggest consumer electronics trade show.

We caught up with Dean Liou, the modder behind what was arguably the coolest mod present and he gave us a quick tour of his bartop arcade cabinet. Though it looks like it could be used with any 15-inch laptop, Liou’s mod incorporates an IdeaPad Y560, which packs an Intel Core i7-720QM, 8GB of DDR3, a 15.6-inch widescreen HD display, and ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5730 graphics.
