Well, this is about the smallest case I know of that you can put an ATX board in. It doesn't have handles, but you can easily install those yourself if you own a power drill.

He could go to Home Depot and get drawer handles and mounting hardware for under $10. They have some really cool ones if you look around. They aren't as heavy duty as the ones made by Lamptron, but they'll work fine for lifting a small computer case.

What's being sold with the Lamptron handles that better facilitates the installation? They're great and all, but I don't see any reason to spend so much money when you can get a set of something like these for $5. The only other things you need are some washers and you're golden.

How would you even attach them to the case :\? You would need to make or buy your own bracket...

Any flat piece of steel of reasonable size and thickness would work. Drill two holes, cut or break off any excess metal, and you're done. I'm not saying it's easier than just buying the damn handles, but it's a great alternative for cheapskates like myself.
