Lets face it, usually computer cases are very much alike. There are the few categories for different sizes and purposes, but inside those categories it's really hard to stand from the crowd. Anyway every now and then a manufacturer tries something entirely new, and this time the manufacturer is Antec with their new LanBoy Air case. The Air is all about modularity and customization and is unlike anything we've tested before. Now without spoiling too much, lets have a closer look!

Due to the special drive cage, the bundle mainly consists of weird looking rubber cords with plastic hooks and holders for the 3,5" drives. Other than that there's a short manual, two sets of installation kits for 2,5" drives and a bunch of screws for adding more fans to the case.
