Taking you back to the early 1990's, does anyone remember what the cases looked like? I mean did anyone ever pay attention to how cases looked back then? I can tell you I remember. Big, ugly, dull white cases sitting under my desk. These "dull" cases as I call them, had your average external drives with a power button, reset button and "Turbo" button. Let's not even get into the Turbo button uselessness.
Now bringing you back to our time, the new millennium, consumers are looking more and more into having a nice case. Would anyone ever buy a top of the line system in the ugliest 1990 case? I wouldn't, and I'm sure you wouldn't either. Does this mean this sector of computing has matured greatly over the last 10 years? Of course it does. More and more retailers/manufacturers are getting into making their cases better looking.
After getting all that off my chest, one thing comes to mind. Shouldn't cases be efficient? I mean looks are great but how about all the features we love. For example, a slide out motherboard tray? Faceplates? Thumbscrews? Retailers/manufacturers have also looked into this and are considering all those features that we love. More and more cases come out with more and more unique features.
Today, is another special day in Canada for TweakTown. We are doing our first case review on the ExoticPC's creation, the dboX. Is it another mock? Flop? Or does it blow us away? Only one way to find out, keep reading.
