Computer mounted on front of robot

Lenovo S10e laptop computer mounted in recess on front of robot.
The robots computer has been mounted on the front of the chest where it can be easily accessed. This modification has been impossible until recently when the lid-closed magnet was removed from the right hinge so that the screen could be closed while the laptop remained on. Mounting the laptop this way also allows the cooling fan to face the outside of the robot so that overheating will not be a problem like it would if the laptop was concealed inside of the plywood skeleton. The ease-of-access that this new location provides is profound since now the laptop can be removed with the pulling of a set of pins rather than having to disassemble a large section or pull aside a cluster of cables and connectors.
