 2000 of the 12x20x24 microdesktop corners

 150 of the *THIRTY FIVE* separate parts of the laptop.  some are
small but at least 10 of them are 230mm long and around 12mm high.
their shapes are.. "exotic" and quite challenging to 3D-print.

 about... $5k maybe $10k.

 yes.  not really practical.

 the numbers for this initial run just aren't worth it.

 preferably here in S.E. Asia so i can QA the parts, but if there were
people i could trust to QA the parts it could be distributed.
