    For a while I wondered if it'd be possible to make a DYI portable desktop system with built in display, keyboard etc. Something robust that can fit in the overhead. Has very durable build quaility. Good for the hotel room or anywhere you can plug in ;)

    EDIT: Actually, this is kind of what I was thinking of:

    Yeah, I remember my uncle having this large suitcase computer with a tiny screen on it. State-of-the-art for the early-80s lol.

    The appealing thing is that a nice rugged portable case with a decent display and keyboard supporting a micro-ATX board would be modable, upgradeable and maintainable for a long time in ways that a laptop generally isn't. The downside of course is the size and weight.

    I think the laptop solution is the best for the size constraints of even the largest machines like the P870TM dual GPU 17" beasts. But if you're willing to carry something bigger and don't need to run on a battery then there should be another slightly bigger option (maybe not as big as the size of the large suitcases I linked above).

    Wow, and it only ways 63.5lbs (29Kg)!

    Seriously though that is one constraint - air travel The system would have to fit overhead and can't weight more than about 20lbs (some airlines have a weight limit of 15lbs but I would try to avoid these lol). That is pretty limiting, though the mighty P870TM is 12.3lbs so that leaves some room for growth!

    There is one suitcase that comes in around 8KGs and has a micro-ATX, but I wonder if it would be possible to cool it enough for a say an RTX-2080 and i9-9900K lol...

    Optional 2nd and 3rd swingout 17.3″ HD displays (touchscreen available on 1st integrated screen only)

    i like what im seeing bruh. more display plus touch screen. this computer doesn't have mouse/keyboard so touch screen is a good replacement such as laptop mouse pad.

    too bad this doesnt come with water cooling means i gotta wait till 10nm+ on intel or 5nm on AMD to throw in a 16+ core cpu.
