Default need a SMALL case...

I need helping finding a really small case that will still fit a regular sized psu. I was thinking something like this, but he said he would still like it a bit smaller... any ideas?

Ideally he would like it small enough to fit in a suitcase for business trips.

In a suitcase? He would be better off with a laptop. A small case I can recommend is one of the smaller ASUS vento cases.

I told him a laptop would probably suit his needs better, but he is still pretty set on getting a desktop.

He said he was looking at this:
Newegg.com - Athena Power CA-1015CR47 Black / Red SECC Steel MicroATX Desktop / MicroATX Slim Computer Case Ver. 2.2 Micro ATX EPS-12V 470W Power Supply - Computer Cases

I'm just worried about it having enough space to fit a decent video card (4830, 4850, maybe 4770) and the quality of the PSU that comes with the case. In my experience, PSU's that come with cases tend to be junk...

Anyways, thanks for the recommendations, I'll run them by him.

The LanBox is 17.0'' x 11.8'' x 9.1'', and, yes, that Athena is crap.

Ya, I found the individual PSU on newegg and 30% of the reviews were 'it worked for about a month then died...'

Not the kind of PSU I would want running my hardware...
