    Which part do they supposedly have the trademark on, exactly?
    Curved Gaming, World's First Curved Gaming, or just Gaming™?

    Just because you can do a thing, doesn't mean you should.

    Quite a few people, actually.
    It's different, funky and cool. Would go well with a curved monitor, or perhaps in a room with curved walls. Maybe placed in a bay window...

    MSI are small time, they've got nothing on Lian Li for pointless cases.

    EDIT:

    What would be cool though, if the curved glass could switch between and double as a computer display.

    It easily could. People have put transparent screens into cases before.
    It's just not happening here because other companies already make better high-end curved screens. They need to partner with one of those...

    Really stretching the truth on this aren't they...
    All I see is 3 straight but angled to one another trays (everything mounted is flush to them and well things like hard drives aren't curved curved) and a curved piece of glass on some stand offs.

    Sorry, not for me. It reminds me of a tool rack and taking up far to much desk space.
