    It's all metal construction, tool-less and has a fan controller, so at least 60 since they are calling it a budget case. Could even be a bit more

    I doubt we'll see it available on UK etailers for less than £50.

    A ruggedised case is more useful for something like a mini-ITX system IMHO as it actually might be moved around more often I suspect!

    Fairly positive it is just just the looks that are rugged, and that it would fold like a pancake if a portly guy sat on it.

    It seems ruggedised has a slight typo in the heading!!

    I'm inclined to agree. It'd be fair enough making a rugged, or even army-themed chassis, but to copy the big red button and the little flip-up covers? Their inspiration is a tad transparent.
