I would be welcome, if only I lived in Europe. wink.gif

Their products are MIA in America.

What I really need is a time machine for 2007 apparently. Here's another discontinued item that would've been cool:

economics is the answer

the shoebox mAtx fad fell through and shoebox iTx replaced it. Companies are not going to produce and research/design cases that there is not a market for (now it is a niche so its a pretty penny). Also I tried the shoebox thing and found that a shorter reg mAtx mini - tower with a front/rear and top 120mm fan provides far superior airflow and better portability and carrying ability.

my two cents

Exactly what I said. Basically take a "shoebox" style system under one arm and a normal mini tower under another arm, and see which one is easier to carry. The other thing is that while the shoebox style looks smaller due to the lower height, they take more desk space than a mini tower.
