    i will regret this tomorrow probably haha but anyways...

    i'm going for as small as possible. i bought a pico-itx motherboard (10cm X 7cm) and a 32gb 233x compact flash card, a super tiny CF card reader and 1gb ram...
    i will try to make my own case, or get it fabricated out of a simple brushed aluminum cube. the mb has vga output so i can just carry my pc around in my pocket and hook it up to any monitor in class/work/wherever.
    if i can get it to work, i think it'll be really neato

    hopefully i can hook up a wireless antenna somewhere in the case...

    Dude, I'd have at least gotten a Mini-ITX board; you can put C2D chips on those.

    As for the case, I always thought it would be cool to get one of my machine-shop friends to create a one-piece metal case with internal stems that would be just long enough to touch the CPU and chipset, conducting their heat to the outside of the case. I was gonna call it the HotBox.

    You might want to add another CompactFlash card slot; you can use it for secondary storage and for plugging in a CF-WiFi card for wireless access.

    i definitely thought about two card slots, one built in and one removable.. i may do that, depends on how it turns out with 1.

    i would like for the case to look something like this... (or something similar)

    stand on in maybe, but if it's solidly mounted on that block and you drop it the components will feel the same forces as if there was no case at all :mamoru:
