[TPU] BitFenix Showcases 2 New Prototypes - Page 10

Ghost looks very cool.

I like the mac looking one, well sorta, it looks too wide and not tall enough. Give us what we want!! Clone a mac pro but make it open like a normal case and allow for a 360 or better rad. Also, make it available in silver and black and toss a good sized bitfenix logo on the full side panels and have a windowed version too. Would be epic, I love the looks of a mac pro case but not enough to spend that much just to have to mod it to make anything fit.

Sorry... We would if the design wasn't "patented" (Rectangular box with rounded edges with mesh) tongue.gif

Well.... then that would explain why nothing has been released. Is there nothing that could be done to make it not fall under their "patent"? Maybe... do a different design for the front? I mean, I personally would prefer REAL 5.25 bays vs the Mac Pros hidden bays.

TBH I know plenty of people would like something similar to a Mac Pro case. Other than that I am not gonna argue about whether it looks good or not since that is best left to each individuals opinion.

Just look at the lawsuit ring with Apple, Motorola, Samsung, HTC, etc... "Hey Samsung, your phone looks black, rectangular, has rounded edges, and features one button in the front."
"You have a voice recognition software." etc. etc. etc.

And the more recent one, Apple bringing a lawsuit to try to stop Samsung from selling their Galaxy Nexus in the US?
Where I'm going with this, Apple's patents are ridiculous. There's no way getting a "similar" looking product past their thick skulls without getting sue'd.

Are there any white models?

No plans yet, however once we release our base SKU, we'll watch the market and see where demands are.
No guarantees yet.

One of us had to come first...
That being said, we're looking into the future of ITX right now. If motherboard manufacturers want a lead in the ITX market, they should soon come up with something.
My analogy: We've made the Ferrari shell. Where's the engine?
