This has been in the "planning" stage for almost 7 month now and I'm just now getting around to collecting all the needed parts. My computer needs have dramatically changed so I'm building myself a new secondary rig for graphical work and media playback. As a challenge (and because I love doing this) I'm building my own case out of glossy black ABS plastic sheets. Here's what the current planned "look" will be but it may be changed soon because of something I just found (more on that later). The red ring you see on the front is a stainless steel illuminated switch I'm using for the power button Weighing in at a mere 6 pounds and measuring only 12 x 8.5 x 3.5 inches in size, this is the smallest machine I've ever attempted. Even at this miniature scale I still have the option of adding an AGP video card AND a PCI modem if I decide later on that I need them. Here are the specs - Celeron 700 (easy to cool, low power usage) - 128-256mb RAM (I'm currently trading for a stick) - UDMA66 6gb laptop hard drive - 8x laptop DVD-ROM drive w/ window - s370 FlexATX motherboard (the one I was going to use died so I'm poking around for a replacement) - silent 95w TFX12V PSU Total noise level = 18dba And now the fun part. I have an LED throbber circuit IN the mail at the moment which will drive 4 RED LEDs. And (just today) I gathered the courage to disect an old bare LCD screen that was originally made for a Compaq 1020 Laptop. I managed to remove the backlight without damaging it and I wired it up to an inverter and now I have the second lighting effect for this case... I was thinking of using it to shine through a cutout, but the darn thing is so bright that I'd blind people whenever I took this machine somewhere. Phew, I still have alot of work to do. Today I should be starting the process of cutting out all the sheets with a friends cross-cut saw.
