InWin Gives Us a Peek at Its Prototype Cases

Mana 136/137

New entry-level cases from InWin that have a bit of flare in the design.

BUC

The "BUC" case has an access panel on the side that gives access directly to HDD, perhaps hot swap for SATA without open the case.

WBY

Very small, but compatible with ATX, so it can pack a Core i5/i7 with an optical drive. There are a few hints of old design cues from the original PlayStation 2.

Prototypes

Perhaps the most fun at checking out stuff at Computex are the prototypes. InWin had a few on display that it plans to brings to market in the future. The ones our team saw had aggressive designs; one has a external SATA connector on the top, another had a "BTX similar design" (the case opens on the right, and the motherboard connection are on top for better cooling).

    With the prototypes, the window is on the wrong side of the case? Or is the motherboard mounted on the left instead of the right...?

    Yet more embarassing looking cases.

    Back in the day Inwin made had really modest case designs. Maybe I'm just old, but I don't like the new ones.

    These cases are embarrasingly ugly. Who ever designed them should probably be fired.

    I dont like the new "aggressive" look people these companies are adopting these days. I just like a simple, highly functional design.
