Specifications, Availability and Pricing
As I mentioned, the LM100 Mini from Luxa2 is specifically a HTPC chassis. With most HTPC builds, builders look for low voltage or power requirements for most of the components that are housed in these small chassis.
This chassis is a bit weighty at just under ten pounds, but that is due to the almost eight inches, outer, extruded aluminum walls. When I said this chassis was constructed soundly, I meant it. Parts that aren't built from the thick aluminum are built from steel that has all been painted black. The exterior is finished in a brushed texture, and left natural in color. This highlights the black center of the front that houses a LED readout screen.
Moving back to the interior, which is framed in steel, due to the compact nature of this beast, there isn't a lot of extra room for "extras". This is the reason for only one slim type DVD drive bay, and only one hard drive bay as well. With the rest of the interior being taken up with the mITX motherboard, coolers, and included power supply, there isn't room to allow for more. In the rear of the LM100 Mini, there are two 50mm fans to eradicate heat from inside the chassis.
There should be no issues locating this chassis if you intend to buy one. The LM100 Mini shows up at almost all of the major e-tailers. Those who are carrying the LM100 Mini are just shy of the $300 USD mark. Looking at the usual haunts, I was able to locate the LM100 at Newegg for $299.99, plus shipping. That seems a bit high for what a little package the LM100 Mini is, but I hope that some time with this chassis can make me feel that it's worth its asking price.
