The barebones looks kind of crappy.

These cases look a little nicer though.

I gotta say, for $139 I put my own RAM, HD and optical drive in.

Can you say "Linux Box"? On the cheap too!

Count me in on the ugly bare bones box!

The internal design with the dual drive cage looks kind of neat, but I'm not interested.

I like the completely fanless design of the motherboard.

This doesn't add up. If the backside of the motherboard in these machines looks like this...



....then why does the back of the assembled machines look like this...?



Confused

I think this is a shot of a prototype. I could be wrong.

Me too, but there appears to be a little 60mm or so case fan in the back. I wonder what kind of noise that thing throws off, or at least what it's rated at dBA and CFM wise?

Yeah, I suppose that nowadays, serial, parallel and PS/2 ports are surplus to requirements...

Yes, I spotted that. I hope it isn't too noisy, or else the noise-conscious mobo design will have been in vain.

I guess you could always swap the thing out if it's bad. There are some really quiet 60mm fans (assuming that is the size) by SilenX. They go like 8-16 dBA. They don't push a lot of air, but you ain't going to hear much at those levels.

I saw that and would like to have DVI in it, but it does have a CF slot for a silent setup.
