    has anyone ever seen online for sale somewhere a full aluminum cast of the switch shell?
    I mean like a perfect replica of the plastic backplate and front screen bezel, but made out of aluminum.
    I was thinking about a little project to make it macbook-esque :rofl2:

    why
    that'd probably cause too many problems for the joycons and internet connection to be worth it

    Sure why not? You can fry some eggs on it after a play session as well.

    It would probably get too hot to touch, as @zaku pointed out.

    I've done my entire console, so back and two joy cons in atomic purple. I'd say that the easiest swap was the back. The joy cons are .Anightmare though.
