Wink  Briefcase PC complete - pics & parts by request
Didn't see the subform for pics. Should move this there. Sorry!

From this question thread.

Goals:
-Relatively powerful CPU and GPU
-Fits in a breifcase that will be allowed as carry on by most/all airlines
-Easily upgradeable - ie should be simple to just swap in new parts without breaking anything or otherwise having to spend hours or extra $$$ to do so.
-Contains/houses any required peripherals


Still a few things to do:
-Put in rubber trim on outer cut edges
-Just noticed some dang missing screws
-Add locking slide hinge for adjustable monitor angle
-Minor adjustments to "velcro"-ed items for more secure holds


Parts list (Google Docs Link)

My wife asked the same question. Big Grin

Was tired of having a barely capable PC that I couldn't upgrade. When it was time to upgrade I had to buy a brand new laptop every time. This gives me power, with the ability to upgrade and still able to carry on at the airport.

That is awesome. Did TSA ever give you a hard time bringing that thing through security?

I bet they think it is a bomb at first. Boy will they be surprised when you can run any computer program in a briefcase.

You should just have BF4 already running on it when they examine it.

Took it through security for the first time last week. Cedar Rapids airport (CID) just took it aside to run a quick explosives detection test on it. That was it.

Coming back from LAX (Los Angeles) they didn't blink an eye. I grabbed it right after running through x-ray machine along with the rest of my stuff. Smile

Not sure if I'm disappointed it didn't cause more of a ruckus or not!! XD
