Specifications, Availability and Pricing
The 15.5 pound Antec Skeleton's chassis is mostly grey textured plastic on the outside and top with an all steel tray system below it. When you first get a hold of the Skeleton it does have a plastic feel to it, but it's structurally very sound with no noticeable flex in the structure when force was applied to it. Being a slight twist on a tech station type layout, the Skeleton has a larger footprint than a standard tower, but only needs 13" in total height for clearance. In reality the overall clearance should be about 15" to allow the fan to breathe correctly.
Speaking of fans, Antec ships the Skeleton with two. First and foremost is the 250mm, top mounted, Tri-Cool, multi-colored LED fan. They also ship a second optional 92mm fan assembly you may add to cool the hard drive bay area. For external bays the Skeleton only has two to use; hard drives on the other hand are a bit different. Antec includes two in the tray underneath, but also adds trays to support up to four more if needed. While not being a tower style chassis, the Antec Skeleton offers all the front panel and expansion options of them; no additional pieces are required to make the Skeleton function, such as the overlooked switch kit for powering the rig most buyers forget to add to the cart. Antec has you covered here!
Availability of the Skeleton is a mute point at this time. Taking a look at Google shopping shows me 190 hits of different e-tailer and retailers carrying stock at this time. All the favorite web based sites are included here as well as a few "box" stores, so you could even get one local possibly. So getting the Skeleton ordered and on its way isn't really the issue, it's whether or not this case style is for you and will your wallet support your decision.
Speaking of how much of a dent in your wallet the Skeleton will create, I found it available at Newegg for $149.99 with free shipping at this time. Considering most tower cases with any flow run into the $100 range, as do many tech stations, the asking price in my opinion is right on. While a tower case may be cheaper, it doesn't offer the overall ease of access to the hardware. Tech Stations offer most of what the Skeleton offers but with a lack of both the overhead fan and the unique style Antec offers.
