Live on Kickstarter in November? This seems to be a little bit rushed. There is no assembled prototype, no thermal tests and no independent tests. And I think this is very important for most people. Especially because regarding thermals this is mainly a DAN A4 with worse airflow.
The case is...
At first: Nice design and good progress!
BUT: After experiencing the DAN A4 which is very much the same built-up i see one major issue here: HEAT
The DAN A4 has massively more venting holes. And even in the A4 fast hardware gets very warm. So I don't see this case working toegether with...
I absolutely disagree. There are major benefits in that concept:
- Only the laptop mode will allow a complete free angle adjustment. This is pretty crucial on such a device. Everybody knows how shitty it can be if you can't adjust a display in a comfortable angle! I don't want to miss that...
Really cool. But it has to be easy to target that bolts. So tolerances have to be carefully considered. Otherwise it maybe tricky to bring them together. That would make it less enjoyable if you want to use this feature often.
Incredible. I would love to see a prototype. I have not been here for a while. This imac style monitor stand is absolutely beautiful! With the I/O ports on the side it is perfect. Like it was planned like this from the beginning.
Do you have a timeline for this project?
Man that is annoying. That's why I am a huge fan of screws. Don't understand why people want to hide them all and accept huge disadvantages like the trouble you have now. I don't see any advantages in this clip shit.
I hope you keep up the good work and we see an actual prototype of this beast. Is the 120 mm rad under the round cut-out? And 60 mm fans behind it?
Maybe it makes sense to have the two top fans as intake? They would directly cool VRM's which maybe better than air-out.
I also like the SFX support. So 330W barrier can be broken if needed. Machines like this are plugged in all the time anyways and relying only on DC ATX is maybe risky because there are only a few suppliers for now.
In my opinion leaving out the keyboard ruins the whole concept. I mean at the current stage it seems not much bigger then some fat gaming laptops like MSI GT80. So as long as the keyboard and trackpad is high quality everything is fine.
