    This is what I've been working on. It's rather crude in design, but it works.

    Intel Desktop Board D525MW Mini-ITX 1.8GHz
    4GB DDR3
    Pico-PSU 150W (and external power brick)
    802.11B/G Wifi (recycled from an old laptop)
    Toshiba 200GB 2.5" HDD
    ASUS DVD burner
    Windows 7 Professional 32-bit

    I was originally going to install openSUSE but I was able to get a free Windows 7 license through MSAA, so I used that instead.

    So what happens when you push the lever down, does the CPU heat up? When it's done, does the DVD pop up? LOLz

    Saw this on the case mod gallery... pretty sweet mod. I know what you could do for version 2.0. Use a 4 slot toaster and build a mini-itx fm2 system, with two of the slots still functional for toast :) looks pretty sweet so far though I'd put a mesh flap at the top
