…I tend to do some wierd things being a long time technician and closet robotics enthusiast. Hopefully you guys will appreciate my portable desktop. After stuff I had laying around it cost me about $300. These pics don’t show the chrome trim around the monitor (added later), and the switches and indicators are on a piece of aluminium under the monitor now. I still need a grill over the power supply vent, and some pretty little chains in place of the hunks of wire that help support the lid. The next step will be to install my device programmer so it just shows a socket and indicator, and some black paint on the monitor brackets. The monitor is safely behind a piece of Lexan but it’s hard to see. The reason for this project is that I dual boot, which is easier from 2 seperate drives, and I need a third drive to use for storage of gigs and gigs of schematics. The drive in the middle was to be my windows drive but I found it had given up the ghost so a new WD3200 lives there now. The whole thing sends a little warm air out the back but nothing gets hot.

Very nice. My desktop is in the same case, built it sometime around 2000. Never got around to putting the LCD IN the actual case, but that was the idea at the time.
