    Talking custom pc/laptop/game console idea?

    just curious...if i want to custom build something like a laptop......
    say...7" touchscreen with 1 gigs celeron...with the smallest motherboard would have vga, audio in/out, onboard speaker, usb 2, wireless ethernet, 20 gigs hard drive, 256 ram....
    what u guys...think...is it doable?
    how much would it cost?
    and how about the size and thickness can it be?
    i call it mobile pc/game console...
    feel free for your inputs...

    What size box can you fab it up in? There are production cases and custom ones. Get your components together and see what you can build. The C134 case is very popular and measures about 7x4x12 or so.

    I don't want to disappoint you but you cannot make something like the Sony you attached with the parts that exist today. What Sony uses is proprietary hardware and not off the shelf components. Maybe with the nano-itx available sometime this year you could get close to it.
