I see your point about having a good case that you could fit different 
stuff in, but that one's a bit mechanist (?) for me. I guess I was 
responding to the idea of ivory keys, handworked detailing, etc. I saw 
one case that was orginally an old radio, dude fit everything in so that 
the impact on the orginal look was minimal ... pretty nifty.

I actually haven't spent much time around a cube, and the tower cases 
aren't thrilling but they are easy to get in and out of. Better than the 
8100 or 9500 towers!

Well that I can agree with, although I haven't been around the Thinking 
Machines at all.
