Since deciding to go the rack route, fitting a laptop or pc into a rack
is something I'm pondering.  I missed the earlier thread.
In IT server rooms, generally multiple servers are housed in 19" racks.
I'm thinking about getting such a rack PC case installing an adequate
computer into it.  I've yet to look into the keyboard/mouse/monitor.
