Hi! I'm currently a macbook 12 user for work and really want to build a customac as my office machine (and for casual W10 gaming) and just use the mbr when traveling.

The caveat is I really like the keyboard/trackpad layout and efficiency of a macbook (trackpad in front of the keyboard) versus the in-line magic 2 layout. I saw a few vendors who created holsters for the magic keyboard/trackpad to try and mimic the macbook but it's far from elegant.

Instead, I'd really like to convert the top case of a macbook air or pro into a keyboard/trackpad for my customac. I checked online and have found top cases for a macbook air for as cheap as $50.

Any chance anyone has done this and can offer instructions? I would greatly appreciate the guidance!

Thanks!
