My laptop has been giving me troubles and i wanted to invest in something portable yet powerful. So i decided to build a potable PC that i will be using as my daily driver. I don't play games often but its better to have a graphics card for some occasional events. The OS running on this will be Arch Linux which I will be booting and installing from a USB stick(the reason i have not included an optical drive in the list). I will buy a potable one if i need one on the future. I am waiting for all the parts to arrive. Will be assembling all the parts together and measuring the performance and will update again.
Justification: [ Motherboard ] : Mini ITX + Wifi + Supports 32 GB Memory for future upgrades. [ CPU ] : Not chosen 6600k as i will not over clock to avoid excess wear and tear. [ PSU ] : Modular and Efficient. [ GPU ] : Fits my case plus powerful enough to run almost anything reasonable and modern. [ Memory ] : Was rated well on pcpartpicker. [ SSD ] : Fast boot plus supports TRIM. [ SSHD ] : Got a nice/cheap deal. [ CASE ] : Portable and Solid. [ CPU cooler ] : The best i could fit in this case. [ Keyboard Mice and Headphones ] : I already had them purchased some time ago.
It was a bit challenging to fit in the parts in this pretty small but strong and well build Lian Li case. Had to unscrew some parts couple of times to do all the wire management properly. But the final result is pretty satisfying.
