    That would actually came in use for me, I run 2 PCs as part of my business, a powerhouse editor and an encoding/burning mule.

    As my encoder is micro ATX I really could use this case and I could hit quite a few burners in there.

    With that the mule is rather good to ship around with offsite jobs as its much lighter/smaller.

    Certainly interesting but most probably out of my price range.

    With a little bit of modding, you might be able to mount a standard 1U switch in the top, allowing a gaming rig and a rendering rig/server/media server to take the 2nd slot and have solid connectivity. That or fibre cards to connect them. Very nice! Depending on the cost I'd also be interested

    As much as I like the idea of multiple pc's in one case I just don't see the logic in this because it's going to cost a small fortune for the case (looks like the price is over £350). You can get 2 full size cases for less and they wouldn't be much larger in overall size.

    at first it looked interesting as a case that can hold a lot of HDD's is something that interests me, but this doesn't hold that many drives compared to normal cases. the setup means you need to have all the parts of 2 pc's inside, so you may as well just have 2 cases which could be much cheaper

    Great idea and could be useful for my office. The £350 price tag makes it a total non-starter for me though, there's just no way I could bring myself to spend that amount on a case alone, regardless of design.

    If it shipped with a built in KVM and 5 port gigabit switch then it would have been full of win, as it is I can't really see the benefit over 2x smaller, cheaper cases next to each other.

    Another good feature would have been a single power socket splitting in two inside for each PSU.

    This would be awesome if you had a gaming rig, and homeserver housed in your bedroom, and you streamed form the server in other rooms. You could keep all the cabling tidy under the bedroom desk, while still leaving the server running when not gaming.
