    AS lovely as these look and sound, the pricing on them is way too high.

    wouldn't it be smarter to put the board upside down and have the intake vents on the bottom? seems unwise to point upward. Additionally, does it still really work as a monitor stand? wouldn't the monitor base block intakes if it were face up? If you're going to make it $299 at least use some sense other than to just make it pretty. Ultimately seems dumb, rather would see it on its side, you can even use the silly legs if you want.

    most cases have intake on the front, exhaust (fan) in the back.
    not sure why when its right to left, it all of a sudden is an issue.

    unless cooling is completely passive, any fan will make it a "forced" cooling/airflow case,
    and position of board/components etc, is not relevant...

    I agree that vents on the bottom would make for a better idea, especially in terms of reducing dust problems, or top-mounted monitors blocking the vents. But I don't think this is dumb at all. I know of a lot of people who use books or stacks of printer paper to elevate their monitors. A PC case like this give you that elevation, while also allowing you to slide your keyboard underneath it. Very space effective. The only thing dumb about this is the price.

    I personally don't see the point of an upright tower for ITX, slim or otherwise. You aren't really saving any more horizontal space on your desk, so you might as well just go mATX, which is often cheaper. If you don't want to elevate your display, what'd also be nice is an ITX case that you can mount on the back of your display. Many TVs and monitors these days have the screw holes for 3rd party mounts.

    Really cool, but really expensive!
