    When are chassis manufacturers going to get back to cases designed by non-stupid people (aka engineers rather than designers)?

    10/10 for concept, let down by execution that got hit by a bright yellow ugly stick.

    Great idea but a clean, simple, all-black (aluminium) modular case design would've looked great. I just don't understand why they had to tack on the colours.

    And I really like that, this does look like a case designed by engineers, not designers.
    The concept of a modular pc case is great, heck I do hope they run with this and go further with it, take the modular concept over more chassis.

    Think about it you get a basic frame and a bunch of internal moduals.
    You can then swap the internals around however you want them.
    Don't like the mesh side panels? get solid ones instead. heck antec could make cheaper steel panels, burshed aluminium panels, layered sound absorbant panels
    Then you just pay your money for the option you want.

    I'll admit I'm not that keen on the yellow and black, does give it a nice industrial look, but think what that would look like with the yellow frame Chromed instead.

    I'll have some of whatever they've been smoking. Either that or someone at Antec needs an eye test, badly!

    Maybe if the engineer in question had a car crash, went through the wind shield, had a stroke, had the ambulance door slam his head, and fell out the back of the ambulance when going around a round about.

    I really like the idea actually, love to see how the "modular case" works. Shame it's yellow and black.. I like yellow on black but when it's a case.. Yuck. And I'm one of those people that love NZXT cases too... Haha.

    Certainly looks like a case which creates, and divides opinions.
    Personally, I really like it alot, especially the whole 'Toughbook' look.
    I'm commenting on an internet forum. Your facts hold no sway over me.

    I had the original Lanboy case and I loved it, infact my next case was a P182, love the Idea of a modular case but not over enamoured with the colour scheme

    AirMount - that sounds extremely similar to the HDD suspension I have in my Sonata Plus, which is really a P150 from what, 2003? Not quite innovative, but I assume there's some improvement to make it feasible to transport the PC while the HDDs are suspended, unlike in my case. Certainly interested!

    Agreed. I prefer my cases to fit in with "2001: A Space Odyssey" instead.

    Is it just me or it does it look like it should have a large 'JCB' brand slapped on it...
