were do you put the power cord?
If you were to claim that a mod "that is done right" You would considered the design flaws, and with every build has design flaws. It's what makes all our builds unique, I look at your build, I can't fault the workman ship but i think your forgot the overall idea.
Its a suit/briefcase computer. What ever you wish to call it, the casing is portable. Your choice of board being a mini-itx your choice of powersupply could have been somthing like this
Without thinking to much into it, using that psu and a simple power inverter and a battery you could have made a switching system to switch from mains to internal power. Modified a trickle charger to charge your internal batteries.
I can think of so many ideas that you could have implemented, you could have done away with a keyboard using a touch screen.
My point being is the possibility's are endless , The idea itself is a suit/briefcase computer, it's by no means a new concept. The keyboard is clipped on externally? This kinda of build should see the case open the same way a laptop does with the keyboard and screen being attached inside.
Your workmanship is brilliant, calling your build "done right:" is unfair to the people that have built briefcase pc's and fulfilled the objective .
The objective of a briefcase computer is to be self contained and what makes it unique is that it's concealed. You've inter graded wireless? Wireless hotspots don't have power points.
This is food for thought, It's constructive criticism.Edited by sil3nt_dr3ams - 2/11/12 at 11:36am
