This build is my second try at making the most portable and powerful PC that I can possibly make. With each build the system keeps getting smaller and smaller. The ultimate goal will be for it to become completely portable, i.e. battery powered, which is my next step. I ordered an HDPLEX 400W DC to DC PSU and will be using it in combination with a battery to power the PC. And once I get the battery operating properly the next step will be to shrink it to the size of an actual laptop.

What are your thoughts on the A20 case? I liked the A10 case initially, but i found it started falling apart a bit over time. I am however looking at a A20 for my next build.

I love it so far! It is the perfect little portable case!

Adhesive joins failing - Partly a design aspect (3mm isn't much to glue to) and partly a limitation of adhesive rather than mechanical retention.

Any news about the glue issue? I might build another pc with this case or silverstone ML series is better?
