    After devoting well over 12 months of my life to a cabinet build (x2) and the subsequent setup & updates…. I am looking around my home office and realising that I have enough bit’s a pieces here to build a MiniCab.

    I’m thinking a small desktop cab running a laptop & 24 inch external monitor with no top box. The idea being that it’s something small that you can just chuck under the arm and take to a friends house.

    My plan for the DMD is to use the laptop screen. The folded laptop could slide out of the back on a draw, far enough to open the screen and then slide back in, so the screen comes up right behind the table.  The DMD could be positioned in the top of the screen to clear the bottom cab.

    The other option is that the folded laptop slides all the way and stays out. This should allow the entire screen to be seen behind the bottom cab and then full B2S backboards could be used.

    God damn it… now that I have typed this, I want to build this so bad.  PLEASE talk me out of it! ;)

    You’re not helping. lol

    I was thinking… I seem to only play VPX now and now that JP has released Flash, all I need is FishTales and my favourites list would be complete. So with just the fave tables loaded, it wouldn’t such a big deal to manage.

    OMG, now I’M being no help.  I must resist!

    counter-point: laptops are easier to lug around. build a small input device that you can plug into your laptop and just play tables in desktop mode.

    Punch it!

    Point taken, but laptops are laptops… I want a “WOW” factor (even if it’s just a “mini-WOW”  :yahoo: ) lol

    I appreciate your effort to talk me out of it though  :good:
