    nice except for the window and the fan grill, although youd never see the fan grill so it doesnt really matter :o

    also you might want to separate those hdds if you have the space, to reduce heat

    I saw this Compaq @ CompUSA today, it said "X-Compaq" on the front, regardless, the point is, the case was all metal, like aluminum, brushed aluminum,i guess, phatty. Does anyone have any idea what im talkin about and if you could buy just the case?
