For those who don't remember or just aren't old enough to remember the Cold War, the Nuclear Football is something that went right over your head. Let me try to bring you up to speed. There was a time in this country where thick aluminum cases were used to house all of the world's top information as it was being transferred from place to place. Remember, this was even before digital transfers were as common and secure as they are today. For the US, during the Cold War, we had to have the option for our president to be able to have access to our nuclear capabilities at all times. This is where the nuclear football comes into play. We actually had an aluminum case that was handcuffed to a man who went everywhere the president did that was capable of launching a nuke from anywhere.
This doesn't exactly play into the realm of a computer case, but the principle is exactly the same for its portability and the fact that you are also housing important information in this along with maybe a thousand dollars worth of hardware - just like in the 80's where the aluminum cases took on an industrial look with the bare essentials on the outside and with reinforced corners and a handle to make portability super easy. Now while I don't expect you to handcuff this case to yourself while you travel with it, it would be pretty cool to walk into a LAN event with a "sleeper system" built inside of this chassis.
Today we are looking at a new chassis from Lian Li that has been nicknamed the Adventurer on the packaging. The actual naming of this all aluminum chassis is the PC-TU200 Mini Tower chassis. As with the cases that used to house our remote nuclear launch capability, or even thinking back to my musically inclined days, a lot of the electronics shipped from gig to gig in cases much like this. The rugged look of reinforced corners with aluminum plates riveted to the frame over the sides of the case for added protection against any accidental abuse this case may encounter in its travels. Taking this one step further, the PC-TU200 has a large comfortable metal handle on the top as to not only fully support the weight of its contents, but also to make lugging it from place to place a breeze. With the idea of an industrial aluminum briefcase in mind, let's look and see just what Lian Li has inside and out of their Adventurer.
