It'll of course be heavier than a plastic case. The billet of aluminum starts out at 1.5 pounds for each half so 3 pounds total. The front and back weigh almost exactly the same at around 0.22 pounds each or 0.44 pounds for a front and a back together. I can probably shave a little more weight off but it'll always be heavier than a plastic case, but on the flip side, the aluminum case is way stronger and it'll last forever.
Show off your completed Game Boy Zero, or post your build logs here!
I've decided to call this build "Metal PiBoy". I laser cut another dummy PCB board from aluminum to test fit as the power board. It has 2 power switches: 1 for main power and 1 for screen power. I'm considering making a batch of these for sale. This is the website I threw together with details... pi2joy.com
