    We love it, but we're not sure we'd go ahead and buy it.

    Fantastic idea, don't have a clue what I'd do with it!

    Looks cool, but the original, larger version was panned by every review I read, so this probably has the same flaws.

    Why does this remind me of the old story about "The Emperor's New Clothes".

    There's nothing to it. Basically its a space frame case with little there (hey, why not just leave the board on the desk and hang the cables and peripherals off it!!) and yet they'll charge you a full case price for it. Great deal. Money for old rope!!!

    I shall stick to a proper case thanks!! Bare circuit boards are for PC Porn Fans like Bender!!

    Surely the only point of the original was for on the fly tweaking, and why would you do that on mini ITX?

    I'm with the "ooooh that looks cool but er.. I don't want one" crowd. Sadly, that's probably true of just about anybody in the market for a PC case..

    Re: News - Antec launches open-air Mini Skeleton chassis

    Does anyone know what the small power connector is for on it? 3DGameman on Youtube says it's a mini SATA power or something. You can kind of see it in the pictures in this forum: http://www.3dgameman.com/forums/showthread.php?t=55451
    Or the videos are here and here
