Maybe you remember that more than one year ago, we had a look at some extreme computer cases... viewtopic.php?f=45&t=5609

Among them was the Thermaltake Level 10 designed by BMW, really "cheap" (only 971 USD at that time :shock: ) and that offered quite an uncommon look. (Being functional was another question, still being debated.)

Well Thermaltake created a new case based on the old one, for 270 USD street price... here it is, on the left, using a lot of plastic, the old one being on the right...

Epic fail? :shock: ](*,) Or is it just me?

It's just a case, you can put almost any regular PC component in it. I assume there will be a description on Thermatake's website soon.

just another over-priced PC case... it was overpriced at $970 due to the ridiculous BMW branding and back-story. it's still stupid overpriced at $270.

http://www.itworld.com/hardware/138740/asus-motherboard-box-doubles-a-pc-case I'd be happy with that, heck it's just a box anyway.

Complete fail....

Looks like an old home movie projector that our Dad's would make us keep our hands off of + all of those leftover parts he had from working on the family car... (the ones he said the car never really needed anyway).

It looks like a joke but no... they really did it. Here is the new special "Snow" edition announced for the new case... :shock: :shock: :shock:

Could someone just shoot them down now please?

Hey, you might like my new system and its case then, Fuze. I received the parts today and hopefully i'll assemble it tomorrow. I hope I'll have time to post about it, as some information could be interesting.
