Antec has built a reputation for exceptional case designs like the Skeleton, Dark Fleet, Hundred and ISK series. At the end of last year, however, the most unique and eye-catching case, the LanBoy Air, was presented.
At first glance, you can tell that this is an enthusiastic and player-oriented product. Antec is promoting the LanBoy Air for its highly customizable and modular design. With a weight of 9.2 kg, the case can be equipped with 15 120 mm fans. So you know the moniker "Air" belongs in his name. Perhaps more fascinating is that almost every part of the case is modular, even the motherboard and power supply brackets.
In addition, the case's "AirMounts" HDD mounting system suspends the drives in the air for excellent vibration and noise resistance. Together with its two internal 2.5-inch SSD bays and a USB 3.0 port on the front, the LanBoy Air could be the most flexible computer case we've ever seen.
Last year we saw some pretty wild looking computer cases like the Lian Li PC-V2120, the Cooler Master HAF X and the unforgettable Thermaltake Level 10, while 2011 brought us the Thermaltake Armor A30 and Silverstone Raven 2 Evolution. In other words, if you are looking for a great chassis there are plenty of choices.
Because of this, it's good news that the LanBoy Air starts at $ 150. At this price, the LanBoy Air is in direct competition with some of the products mentioned above.
Let's take a closer look at what Antec has in store for us …
