    So many version of Define C... The original, with old style window (Define C Window), with tempered glass (Define C TG) and now Meshify C, which is Define C TG with mesh front and darkened tempered glass.

    Finally a shortened ATX-case with space for a 360 in the front and a 240 in the top. Not that I'd ever need that, but back in the days when we had design-competitions I allways pitched this idea to get rid of the drive-cages and only have one in the bottom behind the PSU.

    Took them only 10 years to catch up :p

    Anyways, I'd like to see an even smaller sounddampened Define ITX from Fractal, as I love my Define Mini, which housed my previous PC and is now collecting dust.

    You mention the idea of a shortlist in the article - you guys really should keep a list of recommended cases "at a glace" maybe by form factor?

    I really like this. Love the abstract front too, makes a nice change :)

    Not going to lie, I really want one. If only I'd have an excuse to buy a new system.

    I don't really get the criticism of Fractal cases for not being revolutionary and for playing it safe. Their designs are generally sensible, practical and effective, and I much prefer their aesthetics to some of the hideous "L33T G4M3RZ" boxes out there. This looks like yet another well-thought-out case, and although it's not my personal cup of tea as I don't want a window (or an ATX case, but that's by the by!) I can appreciate the design, especially the move away from drive bays.

    I'd echo JRS's cry for a soundproofed mITX Define. I love my NCase but it's a noisy little critter compared to my old R3.

    I have an r2 Still. I think the front will be lovely and monolithic up close.
