    A new gaming desktop, with a 2 year old mid-range graphics card. Shame as I quite liked the case design with the carry handle.

    That's the one thing most decent cases seem to be missing, especially the lovely big ones - Either one handle atop or a pair of them on the ends, Water and rads and pumps and things do bump the weight up more than you'd expect!

    I'm not sure a 1060 is really mid range, it might be two years old but it's still current gen and hardly lenovo's fault.
    I'm more dubious about the i7, I too like the case, wonder what the internals are like?
    if it's anything like Lenovo's desktops then it's custom PSU and motherboard, so you might well be stuck if you wanted to upgrade/customise. (most lenovo stuff is now using power pass through on the motherboard )

    You can see the rear IO on the video, and it looks like a fairly conventional dual-chamber M-ITX case. That leaves plenty of room around the CPU cooler (under the GPU), so thermals shouldn't be too bad assuming they use a decent heatsink. Could be an odd motherboard mounting layout, of course
