The Poor Mans Netbook




I’ve always been a fan of mini-itx motherboards ever since they came out and after seeing this case I wanted to shove a computer into it. Come payday I bought everything I needed for this at work and threw it together over the weekend. I used some scrap wood I had to mount everything inside along with some hot glue and screws. Its a very rough prototype but I mainly built it because I though it would be neat. I might throw it on eBay in a week or two when I get tired of it so I can get some money to build a newer smaller more powerful version of this.


*Update*
I threw it on eBay and apparently someone sent it into Engadget and now a bunch of sites have picked it up. Its only at 140$ right now but hopefully I will get most or all of my money back on it.
