Seems kinda pointless in a ITX setup. Really how much can you show off?

That's pretty cool. Gotta love Lian-Li. I love what they do with aluminum.

Looks like it should have a LCD screen in the front where the window is. Make the screen touch and you'd have an interesting lil kiosk type computer you could place on any counter at a business.

can anyone say ugly?

This would be really cool for making kind of a homemade AIO. Just mount a monitor on the front and it would be a great and very functional case.

Uh...wouldn't an all in one be a better option then? I assume that anyone using this case would want to put a discrete graphics card or something of the sort in there.

@ themissingpiece depends on what you want to use it for. I'm looking at it from a business viewpoint, initial cost is about that of an all in one, but if any part fails your down time is higher, my idea if a part fails you can simply replace it, and it's more upgradeable.

The only PC case that can do the Mambo!

I think it looks nice, could see using it as a HTPC a nice pretty case to go on a shelf instead of a square box, my wife would probably prefer something looking like the current old mini atx case i use

He makes ugly cases. He should ban from making computer cases.

Neat, but a curved design is not too practical.

Replace the window with a VESA mount for an LCD and I think you have a winner :)

For some reason this case reminds me of a front-loading washer.

This would make it look a little like one of those original Macintosh computers, but in color and curved back.

i like it.
make one for a mATX or ATX, maybe deeper to house a better cooler and lose the logo up front.
i'm not seeing any options to route the cables on the outside though, so they should add that too

Definitely will pass on this. Lian Li has some great cases, but how this got approved by their designers, I have no idea.
