I was actually going to try and make something exactly like that with plexiglass, but I was waiting till the nano-itx became more common so I could mount the board upside down on the top. I was going to slap a HDD in and not a slim mount, but I never did...
The 2.5" hd screws under the mb. Iíll post some (decent) pics tomorrow. Sorry for the size.
I'm planning to provide it as a kit. Latch system is still unacceptable, but not a major problem. It is a push-in push-out device.
The nano mb will give it more room to maneuver, but is not necessary.
LCD housing is molded plastic. Some parts will be of stamped metal for a smoother operation.
I made samples in acrylic and aluminum. I like the acrylic better. Tell me what you think.
All comments are valid.
