    Clearly of no use for gaming lol, 300w won't get you far nowadays. Why would someone buy this ugly duckling of a micro case when I've watched reviews of much better looking micro cases? Why would you not buy a laptop and connect that to a larger screen if you need to?

    This is a slim tower. It's not targeted towards gamers in any way. It's targeted at people that are space constrained, but don't need high-end hardware or a dedicated graphics card. Why would you buy something that's going to be slower than the hardware that will fit inside this slim tower? You can easily run a Ryzen 5 5600G or Ryzen 7 5700G in this case, with the included power supply. Not every computer is intended for gaming, nor is every case.

    I can't be bothered to check case size v Corsair One for instance but I'm guessing about the same size perhaps? I didn't actually say it was 'targeted towards gamers' btw, I made a 'tongue in cheek' remark related to the growing demands of the newest flagship graphics cards (which of course wouldn't be suitable for this slim case). Of course I don't think that everyone who buys a desktop or laptop computer wants to game even if I do BUT if I was 'space restrained' and not interested in gaming then I'd buy a budget-midprice laptop and then I have the option of putting the laptop away when I've finished using it. Oops, that's exactly what I did for my partner who doesn't game and didn't want to buy more than a midprice laptop. They choose to put their laptop away in a cupboard after using it.
    Perhaps you could think before writing a silly reply? Then you wouldn't leave a desktop/laptop enthusiast feeling patronised when you hand out 'advice' that they are already completely aware of. I am learning every day from more than 10 online/YouTube tech websites and have done this for MANY YEARS. Stop assuming others are ignorant or only learn or focus upon gaming, I use a Dell XPS 17 4K for all non-gaming stuff.

    Perhaps you should think before commenting on a product you're not interested in?
    The only one making assumptions in this thread, is you.
