    In-Win Winbot... I bet y'all will hate this!!

    Awesome looking new case from In-Win:
    https://www.overclockers.co.uk/in-wi...ca-08a-iw.html

    I know it's not a plain black/white unlit ultra silent case that Hexites usually seem to favour, but I think this is one to celebrate.

    At the very least, it's a company doing something different and not relying on "World's First" marketing over the slightest variation of the current trend... like having TWO strips of RGB LEDs bordering the tempered glass instead of the usual one and pretending it's somehow a game-changing innovation.

    This is drastically different and, aside from the stupid, stupid price tag, actually looks like something worth displaying. I'm not into ornate vases on elaborately carved occasional tables, but this is the sort of thing I'd consider having as a display piece!
    Plus it looks like some cool retro prop from Space 1999!!

    So even if it's not to your taste, there's a lot of features going on here and I think In-Win are due much kudos for trying something different!

    Yeah, you're right, I hate it.

    But it strikes me as very different and can certainly appreciate why it would appeal to others.

    If they did a reasonably sized M-ATX or ITX version that'd be pretty good. That thing is E-ATX - it's going to be huge!

    Re: In-Win Winbot... I bet y'all will hate this!!

    There's some entertainment value thinking about what the various stake holders involved from the initial concept to the sale of this product were thinking.

    I wonder, who sowed the seed?

    I bet it was the CAD intern.

    Sat there in an office, lots going on around, but the boss has been on leave for a week and being good at the job, the intern burns though the list of tasks given from the week before and there’s not much left to do. Not wanting to leave a bad impression, the intern resolves to do something to fill the time and also, to look busy, so that the next in rank doesn't give the intern some menial admin job.

    What to do? The intern thought.

    The intern sat up straight in the fancy $600 ergonomic office chair and scanned the office. Across the office - was, Lee’s desk? While the intern had been in this relatively small office for two months and a few days, the intern wasn’t great with names. “Lee” was to the intern, the ‘sci-fi guy’, whose desk and the surrounding area was adorned with figurines, memorabilia and posters of various sci-fi themes.

    The intern didn’t recognise most of the references, a bit before their time the intern thought. Perched atop an upright Dell mini-tower on the next desk (whether “Lee’s” neighbour had similar interests or that “Lee” had quite a substantial and over-spilling collection wasn’t clear), was a strange spherical object – clad in glass, curvy with a clean white frame, but what was inside the sphere? The intern couldn’t see much detail at this distance, nor was there much incentive to wonder over – given the aim of apparent busyness.

    The intern snaps out of the daydream state that the office survey had induced and slumps a little in the chair, gaze returning to the pair of monitors in front, displaying the design of a computer chassis that the intern was applying the finishing touches to. This reminded the intern that some form of important looking time wasting task was still needed, and again began visually exploring the surroundings. The wall clock indicated that it had only been an hour since lunch and there was the rest of the day ahead. The intern sighed and slumped further in to the chair with 12 modes of adjustment.

    Both monitors suddenly went black and the intern instinctively wiggled the mouse to prevent the machine from automatically locking the desktop. The monitors flashed back to life and the computer chassis design reappears. The design was contemporary but relatively plain and generic, it was a slightly up-market premium option, boasting dark anodised brushed aluminium panels, glass sides and positions for many RGB LED strips.

    It’s not the first design that the intern had worked on in the last two months and a few days. The intern knew once a design is complete, it’s sent to another team who assess constructability, cost optimisation options and ultimately a production cost estimate.

    Something in the intern’s mind clicked. Wouldn’t it be funny to send a computer chassis, designed inside that sphere across the room, for that team to assess constructability and estimate a cost?

    For the next few hours, the intern was busy; the sphere chassis sketch was complete and sent to the estimating team as the intern packed up to go home.

    Authors note:
    Hey, look at the time! Time to pack up and go home

    Built on demand only, from the sounds of it.
    I guess if enough people go for it, they might mass-produce more at lower costs...?

    Easy - Make something Limited Edition and charge lots of money, people will buy it.

    Seems to be a very successful business model for the likes of Franklin Mint and all those companies that sell tat like genuine sterling pewter models of the Millenium Falcon, or those 'Build Your Own Model Of A - ' subscription magazines.....

    That settles it, we now have proof that the people at in win take heavy hallucinogens while designing anything.

    Not a fan of that case, but I do have a soft spot for In Win - they went from making basic server boxes and absolutely appalling consumer PC cases to producing some cracking models in recent years.

    My home server is housed in a IW-MS04.

    It looks like something Apple might have designed - like the original iMac case - something you love or loathe (didn’t like the plastic iMac case, although I think I was a minority voice as it rejuvenated Apple as company)

    I don't hate it. I also dont like it, and wouldn't pay £36 for it, never mind £3600.

    But "hate" it? Why? It isn't like I have to put up with looking at it, and if someone else likes it, and is idiot enough to pay that for any PC case well, I just hope thet enjoy it.

    And if InWin sell shedloads of 'em, good luck to them.
