2003 Winter Case Review Part 2: The ATX Avalanche

Aspire: X-Dreamer II

From Aspire we received one of their more budget oriented offerings that is known as the X-Dreamer II. The X-Dreamer II is an interesting spin on Aspire's intention to deliver a robust set of features at a cost effective price point. While this case is clearly a budget offering, as you will see, it still has a great number of features that will attract many budget-conscious consumers.
