For the first time in as long as I can remember Antec actually had a booth on the show floor at CES. I think the main reason for this is to gain some traction with their Soundscience Rockus Speakers. Well whatever the reason for Antec returning to the show floor they did have some really cool products to show us, so let’s take a look…
Fremont, CA – December 14, 2010 – In its 25th year anniversary, Antec, Inc., the global leader in high-performance computer components and accessories for the gaming, PC upgrade and Do-It-Yourself markets, today announced its LanBoy Air chassis has secured the prestigious International Forum (iF) Product Design Award 2011 for excellence in design quality in the “Computers” category.
Antec’s LanBoy Air is a state-of-the art, fully modular, open-frame chassis providing limitless configurability and flexibility to high-performance gamers, modders and workstation users. It features cutting-edge cooling and airflow capabilities, an entirely reconfigurable interior with modular drive bays, PSU and motherboard mounts that provide a highly versatile framework (allowing for extensive air ventilation and customization), along with its patented vibration and noise-dampening AirMount™ HDD suspension system.
Antec, a name that is well known and trusted by computer enthusiasts around the world. They have been designing and manufacturing top notch power supplies, enclosures, and cooling accessories for almost 25 years. I have built numerous computers using their products over the years and have always been satisfied, and at times, impressed by them. Today we are looking at one of their latest entries into the computer enclosure market and the newest member of the Lanboy famly of products, the Lanboy Air Blue.
Before we get into the details, we need to take a good hard look at the overall design of this case because trust me, it is like no other case you have ever seen. It is modular and customizable. What does that mean? It means that pretty much every piece can be removed and repositioned to give you somewhere in the area of 35 trillion different ways to configure the case. Yes, I said trillion. That is a very big number.
