I'm looking for a nice full size case that sites on the desk flat rather than a tower. I can't seem to find one anymore. There where some pretty cool ones for multimedia at one point.

I'm building a new desk for my office and I think I'll also be building some draws. The goal would be to have this machine pull out like a draw.

You'll most likely be stuck with looking at HTPC type cases, almost everybody has gone to the tower design.

That being said, you could always find a tower the size you want, and just lay it on it's side.

That seems to be the case. I guess I could look into a mini but than a lot of my stuff cannot be re-used.

There are definitely some 'plus' sized ones desktop style cases...

Ooh - and there is mine - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811280011

But what do you mean by drawers? Will it sit in a drawer? Or should it be like a server on rails?

That's how I read it even though in a drawer or a drawer seems pretty close! Wink
