    Hmm.. interesting, I guess.. But that design just looks kinda childish to me. Does anyone like the look of it?

    I think the price of it puts me off more than the design, although I don't really need the functionality of being portable either.

    It's a shame there's nothing about the temperature versus a traditional case, I'm not sure if it will be cooler due to being open or warmer from the lack of having decent air flow.

    I guess it's more attractive than a rectangular box. I'd like to see someone trick it out with water cooling or some fancy fans to make it look like a technological work of art.

    Like this unique and attractive design. It shouldn't be evaluated at average point of view. Propose that polycarbonate side panels replace the glass panels so that the chiassis could be lighter to carry.

    Re: In Win D-Frame Mini

    Seems a bit gimmicky to me. That industrial space frame design might be good for a portable generator/water pump/air compressor on a building site where the frame does something useful like offering protection to mechanical components, but on a computer? I don't think so.

    Looks like it was designed for a toddler. Of course, ironically it has the least protection from toddler-based attacks of any case.

    Quite like the black one, but @ £250, no thanks!

    Gotta admit really like the S Frame they do but again price is eye watering!
