Default Low Weight/Size Mid Tower (ATX) Cases?

Hello! I'm currently looking for a relatively low-weight, small size Mid Tower (ATX form factor) case that I can move between college and home. A handle or carrying case is a plus, but not required. It should be able to handle high-end gaming components fairly well, but obviously I don't expect the best possible cooling. Any suggestions would be much appreciated; I don't really want to be stuck with the limited MicroATX.

r u sure there's a carrying belt/strap? I've looked on their site and on a review and have seen no mention of a belt/strap.
