Can you help me find somewhere that sells one of these cases? I looked on Plano's website and I can't find it anywhere.

well this is MUCH nicer than the mod my old friend made

mostly because his was reclaimed parts from Junk Laptop in a real ugly Leather Briefcase lol

The old laptop was ancient and heat is an extreme issue for his build =/

Either way Im a huge fan =)

But awesome just the way it is!!!
AAAAA+++++++

Thanks, I would have loved to do that but this machine really was made of stuff from my junk pile, that was the last few pieces of my modder's mesh till my next big parts order.

Correct me wrong this still needs a power point to power up?

I will answer your questions about power.

1. The Monitor is powered through the same single plug as the PSU. I used a little junction block to connect both the PSU and the monitor to the external plug socket. You can see it in the upper right hand corner below the back of the power socket.

2. Yes, this rig does need to be plugged in. It is a desktop afterall.

What's it like for gaming?

Thanks man, and it is a great little gaming rig. The 5770 plus the i3 is more than enough power for almost anything in my Steam library with the screen's 1366x768 resolution (Metro 2033, Crysis and Battlefield BC2 included).

you could have put gpu any where in the casewith two risers cables.
I'm sure you thought of it just wondering why.
Still such a nice build

I had the rigid PCIE x16 riser left over from a pair server builds I did last year, so like the rest of the parts for LANDO it camer from my "junk" pile. Maybe I'll use a ribbon style one in the future if I do another one of these.

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
http://www.made-in-china.com/showroom/hopely/product-detailgoMJXYLVYEck/China-Mini-ITX-Car-PC-ITPS-Power-Supply.html.
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.

Thanks for the critiqe sil3nt :). I said it was "done right" because I met and addressed all of my objectives and addressed the shortcomings with many other suitcase builds that I had outlined in the first post. There are many good ones out there, but most are a little rough around the edges. Yes, you are right that it would be nice to integrate a battery and a charging circuit into such a build but this machine was put together from what was primarily spare/surplus parts I had on hand. To answer your question about the power cord; it is stored in the case along with the mouse inside of the exhaust opening area. The external keyboard ended up being a must as the case simply did not allow any internal clearance to fit something that big in there. If I had a notebook display panel in there I could have fit a slim keyboard in there but the largest notebook panel I have in my parts shelf is a 14" 4:3 oldie from a dead HP. I considered using it but I wanted as big a screen as I could fit in there.

However, why did you choose to use VGA instead of DVI-D?
Overlooking the video cable, this is 10/10 in my book!

I would have preffered using DVI or HDMI but the monitor I have only has a VGA connector.

@op
The build I linked to probably does weigh like 35 lbs, but I would lug a 60lbs brief case to work to be able to pop open 4-way SLI with a mech keyboard and 120hz monitor :P (Ik it's not what he did, but from my math it's posible :P)... Infact I think I'll probably build one the capable (the gear is too expensive for a second build) just for funnsies :rolleyes:

I weighed it for you guys, it is exactly 22.8Lbs with keyboard, mouse and powercord attached.

That is more or less why I built this, I have a Netbook for on the go as it is light and has a looooong battery life. This rig spends most of its time in my livingroom wher I can work on illustrations, images and game while my wife watches crap on TV that I could care less about.

Really cool though, I like the idea a lot, I would totally want one if I had the money to afford this, making your carry PC's would be so cool.
We'd be like those paris hiltons with their bags, except suitcase PC's Lol.

Thanks guys, the reason the Intel inside sticker is on there is to make it easier to travel with this machine as TSA folks would gladly rip it appart if they didn't believe it was a PC. I did a domestic flight last week to the West Coast and brought LANDO with me as my carry on bag. Leaving home airport security made me open it up and power it up to prove it was just a PC before they would even run it through the x-ray machine. No issues on the flight home out of LA, I guess they see things like this more often down there.

Pretty awesome, nice clean job, I'm probably gonna do something similar but not a LAN Box, probably a lower powered Pentium 4 and integrate the keyboard and use some old 4:3 monitor and possibly toss in some speakers on the sides to make it look less bare. My Junk pile isn't as awesome as yours, consists of parts I get from local companies for free haha

WOW i must commend you for a job very well done! this is so much better than any gaming laptop, not just in performance, but in innovation and ingenuity as well. I know my way around traditional rigs and laptops, but its builds like this that make me wish i had the knowledge, the skills, and the balls to actually pull off something like this. very clean, tidy, and well thought out build with a solid cooling system, those design principles are right up my alley, and for that you get mad respect from me.

what really struck me was the way u ventilated the GPU, when u placed it with that 90 degree bridge i thought "how in the world is that cooler gonna breathe?" and then u went a cut a hole in the bottom... so simple, yet so effective, simply brilliant! again, congratulations on a job very well done, pat yourself on the back man, you deserve it, you got my vote for the february mod of the month from the first page of this thread lol! thumb.gif

My Junk pile isn't as awesome as yours, consists of parts I get from local companies for free haha

Thanks man, and that sounds like a decent web/entertainment machine if you can find a case that will work with what you have on hand. I lucked out that my LCD fit with less than 1/4" (5mm) of space on either side. Anything useful that you can get for free is a win even if it is a little out of date thumb.gif

I know my way around traditional rigs and laptops, but its builds like this that make me wish i had the knowledge, the skills, and the balls to actually pull off something like this. very clean, tidy, and well thought out build with a solid cooling system, those design principles are right up my alley, and for that you get mad respect from me.
what really struck me was the way u ventilated the GPU, when u placed it with that 90 degree bridge i thought "how in the world is that cooler gonna breathe?" and then u went a cut a hole in the bottom... so simple, yet so effective, simply brilliant! again, congratulations on a job very well done, pat yourself on the back man, you deserve it, you got my vote for the february mod of the month from the first page of this thread lol! thumb.gif

Thanks man thumb.gif Glad I could make something to garner so much respect, and i am sure that you could build one too feel free to message me if you ever needed help.

Yes LANDO is part of February's Mod Of The Month Contest, a vote for my project is very much appreciated. If LANDO wins, I will ask that the prize money will be donated to the American Cancer Society in Syrillian's name from us at OCN. One small way to say thank you to the man who helped many of us become modders. Rest well friend.
