Anybody know where I can get a kit that converts a laptop LCD into desktop computer use? The connections seem universal (video and CFL)...

That is going to be DYI. I haven't seen any so far, probably because that connector still is not universal.

I've seen it done before, using a laptop screen embedded into the side panel of a case, rather than a window. Been a long time since that was done, though, I'll see if I can remember enough to track something down...I do remember it required a custom-built voltage regulator, laptop displays use far less power than desktop units.

Well, it would be cool if I could put small LEDs in place of the CFL. Tube's years old. So....
