In Win Show Off RockerMat 2, 904, 901, tòu Glass Case

In Win waited for CES to reveal its latest mouse-mastering creation, the RockerMat 2. A bead blasted texture and smooth anodized finish provides low friction and accurate mouse control, while the included silicon cable hanger is especially useful in non-traditional environments (such as mousing from the arm of a chair).

Also on display was the 901 Mini-ITX case from December, which is shown next to the full-ATX 904 for a scale comparison. An In Win representative said they used glass to be "different" from other case brands, but the harder material should also be better at containing noise compared to similarly thin plastic.

If glass side panels don't fit your mirrored fancy, perhaps the tòu might be sufficient. Launched in September, it appears even shinier and more reflective under the bright CES show lights.

    I really don't understand how a company can make a high-end glass case, and not have it configured for removable filters and mounting for custom water-cooling. I mean, do people actually plan on dusting inside that thing every other week or showing off their amazing dustbunnies?

    The one thing i hate about my Corsair 600T is the poor dust filters mean you can see the dust sitting on the black interior through the window. Other wise i love the look of it.

    The 901 and 904 have a magnetic filter stuck to the top of the large intake hole in the front lower quarter :)

    how about a completely sealed case with only gromets for 1-2 exterior radiators?i would buy given the design is super nice, seeing how watercooling itself is an investment.

    $279 on Newegg as of now: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811108456&nm_mc=AFC-C8Junction&cm_mmc=AFC-C8Junction-_-na-_-na-_-na&cm_sp=&AID=10446076&PID=6146846&SID=vluyp90a8hbc

    Extremely nice case (nicest thing I've seen). Impractical price.

    One exhaust fan in the rear no water cooling support = Fail. It looks nice though.

    The Tou looks like a normal computer case with a cloaking device. I'd be afraid to accidentally kick it because it looks almost invisible. LOL
