thanks editor, and apologies for the writing in the last post but I was rushing out. And obviously the lappie is melting. Had an idea for a completely see through centre, wrapped around the front in a curve and the mobo will kind of float in the centre, rounded off top and bottom, nice clean simple lines. Then I saw your cases and thought I'd either have to surrender and bow down to the skill or have to get drunk and go mental instead to get an off the wall idea going. I'll have to see what happens, but it better not be solid sides as it took me ages to do that so far, but it's been good and fun. Every day's a school day!
