well, for a stand, i'd stay away from using an old laptop like that. i'd suggest going to the office supply store and pickup a clear acrylic stand. go to a computer store, pickup a variable speed 80mm fan. then take a drill and a saw to make a hole in part of the acrylic stand, so you can mount the fan to it. go to radio shack, pick up a nicer looking switch, and BLAM! you've got yourself an acrylic stand.

and if you want the ibook/ipod look, just paint the other side of the acrylic white. thats my suggestion.

total cost: <$15
