I've been a PC gamer for a good while now. Being in the military I've always traveled, whether it be TDY, deployment, or leave; and I've always liked to have my games with me. Now I'm fortunate enough to be stationed an hour and a half from my home town, and I go home almost every weekend. A lot of that time home consists of gaming with lifelong friends, and I wanted to be able to have it in a backpack and easily accessible. So I began deciding what would best suited for a "bugout bag" PC build. Inspired by Kyle from BitWit's LAN System.
I went with the AOC monitor for multiple reasons; 1. Response time. Most portable monitors are in the double digits on response time, and this having 1ms I have no complaints. 2. FreeSync. For $120 at the time, why not! 3. I find that the 21.5 inch panel is perfect on my eyes for 1080p and fits very nicely in my bag!
Secondly, yes; the stoppers on the bottom of the monitor are made from cut door stoppers and adhesive Velcro strips (the kind usually used to hang pictures and stuff.) These leave enough clearance for the monitor to not sit on a hard surface, thus pressing the power button, and prevent it from sliding.
The bag is a cheap, spacious, "tacticool" bag I found at a local pawn shop off post for a whopping $25, no complaints so far.
The keyboard, mouse, and headset will be replaced with wireless peripheral's soon enough, just haven't decided on what yet. If anyone has suggestions please feel free to post in the comments!
