The advent and subsequent popularity of LCD screens highlights a new trend in the PC market - highly integrated, ergonomic systems that take less real estate and run quieter. Recognizing this, several manufacturers have already launched their own solutions; Shuttle with the SV24, and VIA with the Eden platform. Even Dell is catching on with the Optiplex GX50. While typically being less beefy than a "traditional" PC, these compact systems seem to have struck a chord with even the enthusiast crowd, becoming a subject of rabid discussion.

Being enthusiasts however, we are not satisfied to just buy these solutions off the shelf. Hell no, we want to try the DIY route! Besides, it would be an interesting aside from building those huge, obnoxiously loud boxen all the time wouldn't it? Personally, I needed a box which I could stow in my carry-on luggage (NOT check-in) to fly to the US. I'll assume you already have a good, financially justifiable (like that's a priority) reason for building one. Without further ado, let's get busy with the beaver!
