This would be awesome for kids ... thing is I'm not spending $379 on a "cute" case for my kids. Add computer parts, and that's one damn expensive toy.

Lian Li always charges too much for their products.

As a model railroader that's pretty cool. Depending on the price I would get one just to put in my train room in the basement where I have collectible railroad stuff from signs to lanterns and other railroad memorbilia.

Very cool, but when it comes to functionality and price, this just can't win. It's more art than a computer case, but then again, that's what a lot of people want.

I guess Lian-Li is betting on there being a sizeable overlap of computer nerds and train nerds. From my experience that is probably a good bet.

My first thoughts too. I like Lian Li cases, the basic black aluminums are my choice and have used them on my last 3 builds.

I don't know why, but I have to have this.

I don't see it on sale anywhere. I'll stick a nice Brazos in there.

I hope their next version is a mule based box. With real hair. And donkey kicks if crashes.

Put the power strip in the middle of your loop and let the cable rotate around as the train moves (obviously that won't work as well for a fancy setup w/actual model railroading).

Lian-Li hands down makes some of the nicest cases on the market... they also hands down make some of the gayest cases on the market!

Some motherboard have on-board power supplies (at least the Atoms that we've used for embedded systems) and only require a 12V DC input.
You could liven each track (one 12VDC the other GND) and power the PC through the wheels.

Combine this with Intels Widi and a Wireless mouse Keyboard, and yo wont need any wires!

Does anyone know if you can get a Mini-ITX motherboard with Widi? ;)
