Lian-Li says it's showcasing new products next week at CeBIT 2013.
High-end PC case maker Lian Li Industrial said on Wednesday that it plans to introduce a new line brushed aluminum chassis next month at CeBIT 2013 in Hannover, Germany. The company didn't hint as to what will be new, but assured visitors that they'll have some hands-on time with the cool train-themed PC-CK101 chassis.
"Get a hands-on experience with Lian Li's new line for 2013 as it is unveiled," the company said. "With cases ranging from traditional to unconventional, visitors to Lian Li's booth are sure to be impressed.In addition to the 2013 line, Lian Li will also display a full line of brushed aluminum chassis ranging from Mini-ITX cases to massive full towers. Visitors will also to get a chance to see the PC-CK101 train themed chassis in action."
We visited Lian Li last month at CES 2013, and saw a variety of cases that should meet any builder's need. The PC-V850 was huge, sporting three 5.25-inch bays and nine 3.5-inch HDD bays. It also had four huge fans mounted on swinging doors on one side, two 120-mm fans on the top and one 120-mm fan on the rear. It even had enough room for eight PCI cards.
The company also showcased a rather unique chassis that resembled a very large standup spotlight, the PC-Q30. Built for an ITX motherboard, it had enough space for three 2.5-inch HDDs, two USB 3.0 ports and a 120-mm fan on the rear. Its overall dimensions were 200-mm x 327-mm x 248-mm.
There was also the blocky PC-TU200B which provided a handle on the top, allowing the user to cart it around like a heavy suitcase. It had a 140-mm fan mounted on the front, one 5.25-inch bay, three 3.5-inch HDD bays, a 2.5-inch HDD bay, and a bay that can house wither HDD size. It also had room for two PCI cards, and measured 220-mm x 320-mm x 360-mm.
Most of what the company showed during CES 2013 save for the PC-Q30 was straight up steel rectangles with a black finish. Of course, there was the PC-CK101 train-themed chassis which stole the show again, moving up and down a short track as seen in the video below. It was pushed out to the front of the booth to attract attention instead of tramps in skimpy clothes. Of course, booth babes would have attracted plenty of attention too, but you can't fondle them without getting thrown out of the convention center by Vegas police.
"With a history of eye-catching unveilings at CeBIT, Lian Li will once again prove itself an industry leader and innovator without sacrificing product quality," the company said on Wednesday. "Attendees will be able to see the expertise of Lian Li in meeting the latest trends and market demands."
Guess we'll see what Lian Li has new to offer next week at CeBIT 2013 on March 5 to March 9.
