I guess, lookin for a kind of walk thru of how i would do this mod
I used a brand new Maytag AC unit. 12,000BTU with built in dehumidifier. I then proceeded to my local sign shop and asked for 5 12x12 aluminum sheets. They were nice and hooked me up for free. I then took those aluminum sheets and bent, cut, taped and glued everything togeather so its air tight. I then went and got a dryer duct. I hooked up the dryer duckt to the AC unit (had to make a large funnel type piece connecting the AC unit to the duct b/c the AC units output area is like a ft wide.) and the other end to the rear of my bracket. Made sure everything was air tight, and turned on the ac unit... once the temps were stable, i put the laptop on the docking station... The fans started sucking up the cold air, and thats all she wrote.. Very ghetto but efficient mod.
FYI: If your using a window unit (like me) thats not in the window (lik me) BE SURE to find out where the WATER drips out.. normally it would drip out my window, but me being a moron it dripped onto my rug floor... oh well, fixed now
