Description

built this as a fun project out of spare parts in the garage, made it basically for portability.

yes, it is in a backpack..

everything worked out pretty good, cut out holes in a cardboard box, threw everything in, put the PSU into the backpack connected everything, cut holes in the backpack (shh! dont tell my mom! XD), finished it the next day and booted perfectly on first try! (besides the on button having some issues)

airflow is surprisingly good! i thought it would be much worse, it doesnt get too hot.

only problem is weight, the computer itself isnt that bad, but the monitor.... whew!

With the monitor so far out it is creating extra torque against you to make it even heavier effectively, get the heaviest parts as close as possible and you could reduce a lot of that extra weight

This is actually pretty smart, I'm surprised. If this thing becomes practical, who knows what people could do for everyday living in the future. :D

We already have windows tablets that can carry out all of the functions of this build. Either way it's a cool project.

Reminds me of the LTT bomb PC. They took the little toy nuke that came with the collectors edition of fallout 4 and built a PC in it.

Oh yeah, one thing I'd like to add, I'm not too sure about this statement, I think that moving the hard drive while it is on is bad on the hard drive (ssd wouldn't have this problem)

  • 40 months ago
  • 1 point

True, but we don't have any spare SSDs handy XD and since it won't be used much, I'm not too worried about it

So is there a market for a laptop with backpack straps on it? I mean, it would have to be lighter then lugging around an ATX power supply.

Just imagine if some major incorporation strides your way to buy this idea off of you so it can be used and implemented as a commercial product. That would be scary cool.

It doesn't matter the case, or the "ghetto level" of the PC; if it has an Antec PSU, then your PC is the best. lol
