TechBits: computing cases (05.29.13)

Posted: Updated:

Some computer companies are going outside the box on your computer box.  THey're deigning cases that are unlike what most people have used before.

Xi3 designs computers about the size of your fist, which bolt to the back of your monitor. The company is now marketing the Z3RO pro line, which is even smaller.  They're tiny, but pack big processing, with a 64-bit architecture.  They also come loaded with solid state drives.

In-Win is turning the idea of a computer case inside out, with the new D-Frame.  The limited edition case is little more than a framework with two smoked glass panels.  It's big and durable, and allows for efficient cooling.  The problem is that he open design means you'll hear every sound your computer pats make- so get quiet hardware to put inside.
