    Looks.. subjective, but that case seems like it'd be a pain to work with - how easy is it to plug things into the back with that plastic facia in the way?

    What's not to love.
    Plastic monstrosity on the outside, 1996 looking back panel from a pentium 4 HP chassis and ladies tights for side panels.
    With the front opened up like in that last picture it reminds me of a little aborted alien/mutant with thalidomide arms just gently whispering 'Kill me'.

    Re: Acer Predator G6-710

    Certainly makes a bold statement. It's kind of Fugly, but kind of SyFy Channel B-movie cool too... looks like something from a 90's SciFi movie.
    I'd be a bit scared of using it in case it suddenly morphs into a rabid psycho-killing machine mid-game and rips me limb from limb

    The interior looks like it could be tricky to work with.

    Re: Acer Predator G6-710

    Ugly. Wish more companies would produce gaming PCs with clean ('stealth'?) look. Also very dated interior. My ageing Antec 300 is better in every way (especially cooling) except for a lack of a CPU cutout on the base plate. Guess I'll stick with custom builds if this is all you get for the money.

    Re: Acer Predator G6-710

    Oh dear...

    That rear reminds me of the old Packard Bellends from the late 90's early 2000's. With all the money these companies have and buying power, that's what they come up with. Acer, if you want me to head up your 'gaming' section, let me know.

    OF COURSE, Pissy World would stock this haha

    It is Fugly, expensive, noisy, silly storage options and no effort has been made to tidy up the cabling.

    I am guessing they do not intend to sell many (any)

    So basically a cheap basic steel chassis circa 2000, covered with what looks like Darth Vader's cast off mask?

    It'll sell in large numbers, because there are loads of people with more money than sense. Alienware has been selling overpriced plastic tat successfully for ages, after all

    It's not really comparable to Alienware. I can't speak for their recent stuff, but a few years ago they didn't just stick a plastic shell on something, they had immaculate interiors, cabling, and used to come with a fair bunch of software optimisation (and the tools to repeat it yourself).
