Default Inspiron 17r Flip???

Hey everyone, ive been seeing the commercials of those dell laptops that have the flip screen. I know this is kinda crazy, but I just need to know if this is possible. Would it be possible to make my inspiron 17r a flip screen? I doubt it would be possible, but I just want that really bad, and I just bought this laptop for a great price. Thanks

Simple answer, no.

Technical answer:
The flip screen is actually a touch screen with a fixed bezel and a center touch interface. You would have to chop up your laptop a lot and have some electrical knowledge before being able to do it.
