NVISION 08: Antec's New Case, Peripherals

By - Source: Tom's Hardware | B 3 comments

When it comes to cases and case accessories, Antec is usually at the forefront of innovation and style, and at NVISION 08, it’s no different.

One of the more interesting cases to hit the market in some time, the Antec Skeleton (or Dragon Bones for those in Asia), takes the computer case in an interesting direction. Made for the hardware enthusiast who enjoys showing off what’s under the hood, the Skeleton is the open-faced sandwich of cases, exposing most of the major components while still offering fair protection.

The massive fan 240 mm fan on top, accompanied by a 92 mm in front offers more than enough cooling for this case. The components trays also slide out so you can effortlessly change out hardware, or show off the guts to your friends.

Antec was also showing off the newest products in the Veris line, including four new Multimedia Stations. With four different models (E-Z, Basic, Elite and Premium), ranging in price from $35 to $135, the Multimedia Stations give those who find themselves using their computer as a movie theater more control over their movies, music, and TV shows.

The included remote controls aren’t anything to sneeze at, either. According to Antec, the new Veris products have already shipped, and should be available in the coming weeks. Look for the case sometime in the next few months.

    Certainly, but you can't blame Antec for trying something new. However, the last time the Skeleton was brought up a user pointed out that it would be good for people who frequently benchmark different hardware.
