This is a good idea for an essential problem... most cases get their air from under the front bezel, problem is that the cases are often just sat directly on carpet :) I'm going to buy a P160 when it comes out (pending a SPCR review, of course) so I'll need to come up with a nice way to hold it up o...

I think laptop HD has the potential of being inaudible with a good enclosure. Maybe sidesinks and a completely sealed foam box. I would actually recommend against using a laptop harddrive. I recently had to distribute some 3d rendering across my desktop and my laptop (complicated scene, time constr...
