...i dunno.
At first I thought that cpucity.co.uk have started selling vacuum cleaners... :shock:

I do think that it can be a fairly cool running case, just like many others. They are available right now!

But just look at it!!!

Maybe something for those want to upgrade from their Tt Xaser... :wink: ...king for a day, fool for a lifetime...

Anyway, the green one is the ugliest by far.



ps. I'll probably eat my hat when MikeC calls it "the best case of the year" after reviewing it! :wink:

Update: New Vento 7700 model.

I really hate to admit it, but I'd like to see one of these up close.

Kind of like a moped - fun to ride, just don't let your friends catch you

lol @ the thread so far....

I'm with wooglin on this one (like the analogy), It looks sortof interesting to me. I dont mind crazy shapes so much as bling or busy trim and thankfully this has none of that. I doubt it'll be available in the US though, where bling rules supreme. "King for a day, fool for a lifetime" may indeed be apt in this case however.

A review panning the case, as if the looks werent enough.

One would think that something more interesting than a single 80mm fan was happening in the front...

:idea:

FYI, the Vento is based on the Evercase 42x2 chassis.

....and now we also have the Vento 7700! Didn't really think it needed a new thread.

Glad I don't have a Vento. Just a plain Ever Case 4252. Same internals, but without the stupid looks. The 7700 is even fuglier though - Asus have topped themselves.

Looks like a cross between an old iMac and the old SGI Indigo case design.
