Get a labtop. Get a aluminum case, but you got to be careful because a lot of cases or very poorly made and won't stand up to much beating like being takin back and forth from different places. But like I said get a aluminum case.

If you want a very nice aluminum case, get a lian li. They make beautiful aluminum cases that are light and fit togeather perfectly. They are fairly expensive but i have the 65-B and I love it, the whole thing flows perfectly and fits togeather flawlessly, they definately know whats up. Plus its aluminum so it weighs only a little more with everything in it than my other case did on its own.

Go with SFF for sure, you don't get many extras, but they are pretty nice and you get better performance for less than a laptop

As they said above Shuttle basicly own the SFF market
