My System Specs

Default Good case for portable mATX build

Hey Everyone,

One of the guys at my work wants a new PC that he can bring between the field and home on a regular basis. He doesn't want to go with a laptop but still wants it to be portable. We have monitors at the field office and he's got some at home too, so I was thinking of a mATX build. Any recommendations for a good, light mATX case, slim or mini, maybe with a handle?

Price isn't much of an issue (barring spending like $400 which would be silly for a work case). Airflow would be nice too, though I'm well aware that can be pushing it with an mATX case. Something like the APEX TX-381 - APEX TX- 381 Black Steel MicroATX Mid Tower Computer Case ATX12V 300W Power Supply might work, preferably without a crappy PSU included though :D

Any help would be really appreciated. I'm thinking of going the HTPC case route if all else fails, since he might want to hook it up to his living room tv for blurays on occasion.
