    Advice/Help needed in finding a SFF case

    I was wondering if anyone knows of any (preferably UK based) shop that sold SFF which have a instant on feature, this was first introduced to the world by Shuttle, where it loaded a small OS for music use only....

    At the moment I can either find the DVD styled media cases (by many manufacturers such as Hiper) or 1 SFF from Thermaltake. 1 month ago Aria had some but they're disappeared.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Mainly home use, but small and portable so that I can use it for those long car journeys, i.e. round trip to London in heavy traffic so I have more of a music collection... (car use is NOT essiential, but small and portable is, for use in possibly 2 locations - work and home, and LANs.)

    is it going to have the 7" screen in aswell??? your probably going to have to build your own case which isn't to hard just takes a bit of effort..... I take it your going with mini-itx for portability then??? I would reccomend Commel motherboards for sheer performance as VIA inbuilt processors aren't very powerful. have you made a list of components??

    I would go for a Shuttle for your PC needs, and get an MP3 player for the car.

    You can get DIN standard car stereos that will stream an MP3 collection from your mobile phone over bluetooth these days for not that much money in PC terms. For 100 quid JVC do a head unit that can take a DVD full of MP3s, or you can get something with a USB storage socket or SD card socket for less. We use an Ipod interface to the stereo.
