I thought that was a cool case (no pun intended) when I saw it at CES.

all i can say is that: I want it!

but the price tag is probably going to be pricey

not including the added fans that I would want to add to the mesh filled case :)

really original design, but i don't think the aesthetics will appeal to many people :-k
