"Apple Netbook" Student Project Is a Pencil-Drawn BeautyS

This little project has been making the rounds as the "new Apple netbook," which, unfortunately, is way off. But the truth is pretty cool anyway: It's a beautiful pencil-drawn, wooden model.

Student Kyle Buckner made this 3/4 scale model out of wood, with real working hinges and everything, and hand-drew the Dock, icons, keyboard, trackpad, and even the little Philips screws on with a pencil. It also features a magnetically-attached "screen" that has a pull-tab underneath. When pulled, the tab shows a very cool film strip drawing with illustrations of the wonders of Mac. Check out the gallery below for more shots. [Kyle Buckner, thanks Kyle!]
