    I don't know the dimensions yet, but with the big bloo touchscreen, I reckon it would have potential!

    It's an interesting idea. From what little i've seen, people who build special PCs like this end up spending quite a bit more so it's not a cheap way of building computers.

    Off the top of my head, you would have problems finding a right size of motherboard, and you'd probably have to consider an external power supply.

    I've always found this website to be an interesting read:

    Hope you find it useful.

    I was even considering rripping the inside of the speakers out, putting smaller speakers in, and utilising the rest of the space for other bits an pieces....the motherboard is my biggest worry though.....

    Yeah you'd have to use something really tiny like these:
