iPads are still not cheap, and people are willing to do anything to get their hands on one, a teen has even sold his kidney to land his very own oversized iPhone.

Now, a Chinese engineer Liu Xinying assembled his very own iPad using a touchscreen and various other parts that he collected from the computer store he works in. The final product cost him around 2000 yuan (£190) to make, while in China, a 16GB iPad sets you back around 3688 yuan (£350).

It's not an exact replica obviously as it runs Windows XP and is a tad heavier but we're still impressed.

You can find out how he did it in the videos below:
