    Early 2009 Mac Por Specs:
    8 Core 2.93
    16 gigs of Memory
    Dual Super Drives

    My Question is this,
    I currently travel with my mac pro around the world using it for a video wall server.

    Which i've had great success with it traveling in this:

    This summer i will be traveling more domestic so i want to build a road case for it so this way i don't have to go through the setup of all the wires and screens every day.

    Due to space issues i need to make the case as compact as possible. Which raises the question can the Mac pro run and operate on its side?

    I have heard as long as the motherboard is facing the ground on the bottom its fine.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you all in advance
