Jeffrey Stephenson creates Flightline PC using a GIGABYTE Thin Mini-ITX board


Just to follow up on Dino’s blog below. Here are some more details. Renowned craftsman and PC builder Jeffrey Stephenson (known to many as SlipperySkip) has now completed his latest creation, Flightline. Inspired by the Wright Brothers Memorial in North Carolina, and sporting a GIGABYTE Thin Mini-ITX board, Flightline is basically a desk ornament that is also a PC. The outer shell is made of quilted maple, maple burl, mahogany, lace wood and aircraft grade birch plywood, i.e. several types of damn good quality wood…

I’ll let the photos speak for themselves…

Despite being really thin, the piece offers a thoroughly decent level of performance, powered by an Intel Core i3-3225 processor on a GIGABYTE H77TN Thin Mini-ITX motherboard with 8GB DDR3 and 60GB mSATA SSD. Not too shabby…
