Crazy case design. Can't wait for the price.

I could never figure out why people were so stuck on the need to use a PC case in the first place. I've thought about gutting my old Panny RP-56 case and using it. Unless one is building an HTPC with DVR functionality or creating a media warehouse to store >100 movies then small should be well within one's means.

Ya think he meant 1/15? Wink Yeah, it's very close to 1:1.
CANADA Dollar CAD 1.023052 1.016046 +0.6895%

Wow, now that's an impressive HTPC case... Yes, it does look like a microwave, but it's still awesome.

I missed that the screen was a touch screen until I saw the last bullet item that says 'matching aluminum stylus'. The frickin' LCD is a TOUCH screen! Awesome! Even the interior is well-designed with removable motherboard tray, rubber drive mounts, big fans.

One dealer lists it for 1,000 Euro, which would be just under $1500 US. It's about five times what I could even justify, but it's a SERIOUSLY cool case.

SC getting a stiffy over this one. lol Yeah I love touch screens I surfed the net for years on a 10.2" Fujitsu touchscreen. I miss it. It took me a long time to stop touching my coated monitor screen and leaving fingerprints when the Fujitsu died.
