[Loque] New Mini-ITX case, Ghost S1, Launches A Kickstarter Page - Page 6

Node 304 (Fractal Design)
Elite 110 (CM)
250D (Corsair)
SG13B (Silverstone)
Hadron (EVGA)

These are just highly-rated mITX cases from PC Part Picker which, in my opinion, have simple designs without many angles or curves. Now, sure, this one might be a bit smaller, but that isn't anything new either. Visually, this is an Ncase M1 with less personality. The subtle angles on the front panel have been removed, as has the cutout for front I/O.

I don't see anything new. That doesn't mean I don't want it to succeed - sure, as long as the backers actually get the thing - but it's well-trodden territory.

Most of those cases seem to be noticeably larger than the Ghost S1 and Ncase M1, and several seem to have been discontinued

But, they really don't. This is only 7.3 liters. For someone like me that moves to a new country every year or so, something this small is indispensable. There really ISN'T anything this small. Thus, I pledged.

I'm ELATED to pay a premium for something this small. It'll fit into my carry-on suitcase with ease and it'll be light; a whole lot lighter than the custom acrylic I'm working with now.

Also, this. The Ncase M1 is over 50% larger than the Ghost S1. The Elite 110 is slightly more than twice as large!

I bring my keyboard and monitor. I buy speakers everywhere I wind up along with a 50" or so 1080p TV.
