    Interesting looks, the door system reminds me of this huge Asus chasis (blue/red)

    I think that looks cool ... bit ott but cool

    You'd have to mod it so you can get the front doors on a proper fast RAM proper transformers style

    If I would buy such an high-end machine it would certainly be not from Acer.

    I thought the same thing.
    Acer just does not have the same "prestige" or high end tone associated with it than say Alienware, HP, Voodoo, Dell (RIP XPS...) (not that I would buy any of these preconfigured systems.)

    This is just high end hardware in an aggressive muscular case, the kind of PC a spartan would use.
    I prefer the cleaner lines of the blackbird, this is too agressive for my desk.

    Here is a pic with matching monitor.

    BTW g3n3tiX, were you thinking about the asus vento 3600 front door?

    what a retarded thing. They advertise the rig as WC, saying you only need one fan for the entire case, and then let you order three 9800GTX's

    "sure, you plug it in, i'll call the fire dept!"

    Exactly. The fold-up system is interesting, but it could be fragile. (It looks like it is on the Asus, I've seen one IRL)

    The Acer pic you provided is nice, it's not like a teaser, so you see it's massive.
    It's good looking, but as a prop in a movie, not on/under my desk !

    It's fugly and it's Acer. Lets see.... Why would I get either of those two things? :) And oh, despite the very non-blue color of the chassis, it still has blue leds in it. Just silly.

    Man... if the case were more Lian-Li like, but still had that gangster door, I'd buy it.

    Would be nice if it wasn't from Acer.
    Because if it is from Acer, you just KNOW the door mechanism will break.

    I installed windows vista ultimate x64bit and still get those rating. Hey its run good so far with water cooling system. There a hidden door where you swap out sata hdd. I normally not an acer fan but I am pretty surprise with this acer but I still don't like other mainstream acer pc. I like best is when I lift the front door up and when I closed it, I just had to let it go. The door slowly closed itself.
