id wait to see what yewen has to say first. he knows his stuff when it comes to cases and helped me decide which case to go for as you can see. (i eventually went for the pc7b)

however 3.8kg?! i cant imagine thats going to cope to well if you are moving it about a lot to be honest. id guess something that light is going to end up getting dented sides etc

Cheers for the linkage.

I think i've settled on the Thermaltake Matrix being as it's only 3.8kg!

Got some great reviews up too. :p
Its probably made of cheap plastic if it weights thats much

I'm gonna say a Antec Super LANboy because they are really light weight, or if I put on my Yewen imitation head I'm gonnas ay the Lian Li PC7, great price and lightweight too, plus it is built well.
Just havent got around to buying one myself :p

Haha, what I would say has already been said, but I will add my real slant to it anyway. :)

Lanboy, designed for Lans, built to be moved around without flexing and damaging internal components, small enough to git in the front of a car in the passengers leg room compartment and it is built well enough to withstand the stress that moving a PC can be.

Lian Li PC7+II is lightweight and very well built, fully aluminium and nothing would break of if you bashed it into something. (What you hit it with would come off worse.). That makes the PC7+II an ideal solution for moving a rig about it, and if your PC is sat at your desk all day it is a great case for that aswell. ;)

Can't say I have gotten my grubby paws on one of them so can't really say how they are, but I would try and get one in person, and fling it about a bit, any creaks or movement in the structure then I would not trust it with me and being moved, I am quite clumsy. :p

Gonna have to say the super lanboy, nice small and light cases plus they come with a carrying strap thingy which makes them very easy to move about. As an added bonus they look quite nice and have decent cooling as well as being quite cheap (got mine for £40inc del. second hand with everything included) and they are just under £60 new.

I am using one with my #2 computer which consists of a Pentium D 805 @ 3.7ghz, x800gto, 120gb HD etc. and it keeps it fairly well cooled with the front case fan @ 7v and the rear @ 5v using stock cooling and an 80mm fan fitted to the side panel at 7v.

Lian Li PC7+ = 120mm front 80mm rear.
Lian Li PC7+II = 120mm front 120mm rear.

Most PC7+'s (all that I know of in last 6 months) have been the +II variety but as they use the same box no retailer will risk marking up as +II incase they have a old one in stock. (One does but who wants to pay £100 for the guarantee).

PC7+'s that OcUK have sold recently have all been of the superior 120mm / 120mm configuration; the price is very competative.
