Hi, I'm looking to sort out a new PC for my office which will also be equiped with a TV and full 6.1 speaker system. I work here all day and currently have an Athlon system which I have spent hundreds trying to get quiet. I have a flower cooler, QuietPC PSU and case fan and have insulated the case. I can still hear it and it still winds me up. After a days work, the relief on turning it off is immense even though it's much quieter than many PC's. I'm just fussy I guess. So, I've given up on the idea. What I want is a PC that is as quiet as my Sony Vaio which is near silent except for the odd hdd click. I don't use this as a main pc because it takes up desk space. I have an LCD monitor hanging on the wall and need my entire desk free. What do you think of getting a newer, more powerful notebook and putting it in a cupboard with keyboad, mouse, DVD and floppy (and anything else) hooked up by USB2? Obviously the monitor is OK with the SVGA port. The external drives could sit on shelves where my tower pc now stands and would have their own power supplies (I assume). For audio, I use an Abit USB thing that converts to optical to plug into my amp so thats not a problem. I would need a laptop with video out probably. The main problem I see is the power switch. However, surely this is just a push switch that you could rewire to an external switch quite easilly. On my vaio, it's easy to get to as well. Any thoughts? I don't want quiet, I want silent and I don't mind paying a bit to save my sanity.
