What me worry? Never!

It does bring up a good point however about the vast differences you would find when making a comparison to what a growing number of these boards can offer when compared next to some hand held gadgets! Some of the micro atx cases with carrying handles on them can run into some money however.

While I ended buying two Vulcans one for the 64bit Home Premium I put together for a family member and the other running the Pro x64 I would for remote projects when going to shop around I ran into a few model priced around $150-! micro atx case with handle: compare prices and read reviews - Bing Shopping

actually, I have seen better m-atx and atx cases made by modding a bit an aluminum luggage, here is a video here a set of pics. either luggages can be bought for 40$ or less.

I saw the YouTube video on the first link some time back and thought to myself just do a little work machining out a metal case and there you have it for far less then what they charge for some cases!

The second looks planned out far better as you look over the 2006 article there.That looks like a 17" or 18" for the lcd there.

I'm actually seriously considering to place my full ATX gaming rig (still awaiting shipments) in one of those aluminum luggages i had around for years as I do need it much more portable and sturdy than most desktops and I can't stand the sight of any gaming case I ever saw.
Of course when operating it will be open (so I can avoid to cut it as I don't want it to attract a lot of attention when closed), and I have already a good sturdy motherboard/expansion slot support panel with screws I tore away from the last depressingly old beige case I put in the trash.
may post pics in the other if I assemble it in a luggage.

That would certainly be a project as long you can effectively cut the openings as well as keeping them neatly done and correct to fit for optical drive and expansion slots along with the openings you would expect to see for P@/2, USB, and other.

The Vulcan case was bought here since it did have a carrying handle but was also quite a bit lower priced for a smaller portable case then when finding the ThermalTake model for twice as much as the alternative. The ThermalTeke model was lower and wider in shape seeing the one 5 1/4" in front and drive bay below and made of vinyl for the main portion of the casing itself with the plastic front face.

For a suit case project if metal that would solve the common ground issue for ESD. But can also bring up a shock hazard item when being made a portable as well. That was one concern for not wanting the vinyl case since plastic likes to be an esd factor at times.
