Antec Lanboy Case Review

Cases & PSU/Cases by jmke @ 2003-03-31

In the past Antec cases were known for its sturdy structure and great features, but they werent the smallest ones around & surely not the lighest either. They still remain first class in the midi/maxi towers, but now they also have a new product up their sleeve for the LANparty folk. Aptly named the "Antec Lanboy", ultra-light and packed with nifty features. We test its portability, easy of use and of course the performance.

To the LAN-Mobile!

Today I present you with a new product release. It was available before in the U.S. But only recently did it become available for the European market. Sporting a 350Watt - 220V PSU.

Now that I mentioned what differs with the US version I can start showing you why this case might be your next purchase.

This is what Antec has to say about their product:

You don't game the night away alone - that's not your style. And when you get together with the gang to battle it out, you want a case that won't weight you down. That's why this super light aluminium case is just for you. With easy-tote carrying strap, blue LED-illuminated power supply, and windowed side panel, it's just what you've been looking for. It's definitely the Power of You
