Hello there bebop fans! I joined this forum just to show you guys what i'm making, and to see if anyone can help out. I've decided to make a working replica of Ed's computer! So far i have what i feel looks really good. I can only find so many pictures on google, and "Tomato computer" really doesnt get me anywhere, if theres any geeks on here ill tell you what i planned on software wise

- My Dell server motherboard, intel dual core with probably a 40 gig hard drive, advanced cooling fan keeps my cpu at 20C constantly
- Linux based distrobution, most likely Ubuntu
- 100% keyboard operated desktop, Ed never uses a mouse! I have a desktop enviorment where everything can be operated from the keyboard
- A built in microcontroller(Arduino Uno) which will be plugged into the linux computer, allowing me to interface with random electronics like Ed herself does.

So now what i need from you guys is simply just...pictures of her computer! All angles, please! If you have any good ones, please please please send em my way!!

Non working at the moment
