I was actually thinking about the same exact thing. I think you'd have to mod the case to do it.
If you had microATX, the closest thing you'd find is the silverstone fortress ft03
I wouldn't mind going to micro, I'm just so unfamiliar with those parts, and I just assume that it's much like laptops in that you're paying more for less power.
With standard parts, everyone knows the current intel lineup whether it's the newest Quad core or Sandy bridge, etc. Not to mention Micro is so small that fitting the gpu becomes a problem.
I've seen a lot of school computer labs filled with cheap dell slim desktops, ie:
Also, I've seen these Acer desktops:
Which look incredible to me. But I just can't seem to ween off a powerful desktop and stick to a nongaming laptop. But I always go back to things like Minecraft or older GTA series or The Sims (nothing too demanding, but still). So I really can't decide between:
2)Laptop with dedicated gpu that's heavier and gets hotter
3)Powerful desktop with all the bells and whistles
I'm in college and it seems everyone has a laptop, but I honestly can't think of a time that I've needed a laptop IN class with me. We all write down notes on paper, online quizzes can be done at home/library, etc. But then when I get a big desktop with an i5 and 6950, it becomes cumbersome and I realize that I'm growing out of hardcore games, and I want a slim laptop and just plug it into a monitor, but then I miss my desktop again. I can't make up my mind ha.
