Okay, how's this?

Making a console portable is tricky enough for me, let alone making it look good.

Then you obviously aren't very good at making protables yet, practice practice and practice helps. I also do casemods for a living (not yet but I'm preparing to, need enough stock to start selling and buying), but when you have the proper tools and plan stuff ahead, making cases aren't very hard, making them look good is another step, good planing means you can design a cool case. Not a lunchbox franken case. I know I'm being really hypcrtical since I've yet to make a portable but I'll show ya when I do.

Just 'cause somethings tricky doesn't mean I'm not good at it.

This is a stupid pissing contest.

I'll simplify it for you.

Exploding.Monkey knows that it is tricky to make a good looking case.
He is right. Everyone who has made one could tell you this. But it is not impossible.

Dark-Aries: Planning of course makes it easier, but even then you will run into things that you didn't plan. It's tricky.

Before someone starts ripping me for having no experience, you better bring some experienced to prove me wrong.
