Lightbulb I have a crazy idea for a laptop!

I'm almost done with my cybercore degree, so I know a considerable amount about computers. So, after looking at part sizes for awhile, I was thinking about builing a computer, within a briefcase, specifically this one:

...due to it's rather large size. The great thing about it, is if I put a 15" monitor on the top flap, I then have room to the left and right for speakers. If you can find a bigger briefcase, please tell me.

You can buy laptop cases, but it is still very hard to do. Try Ebay.

I'm sure it's possible to get some air ducting through there somehow. Either way, you'll need a hole for the power cable at least (unless you only plan on running it when it's open).

I did a bit of searching on Google, but I couldn't find anything with the design you want. Oh well, here are a couple pics:

couldnt you put some sort of air ducts in the bottom where the hinges are. then you can at least keep it hidden when youre walking about with it.
