Abee Acubic M20 PC Case Is a Small Aluminum Cube

People who were wondering how long they'd have to wait before a new HTPC case showed up need wait no longer, as Abee Corp. has stepped forth to assuage that need.

The new case that Abee, a company based in Japan, put together is called acubic M20 and will start shipping soon, if it hasn't already, in Europe.

The price of the product is 239.90 Euro, which is more or less the same as $328.71, according to exchange rates.

Then again, when, if ever, the item makes it to the US, the chance isn't very high that the price will reflect this.

Regardless, the acubic M20 has quite a few things to justify the price, even though, in the end, it is still a fairly high-end product.

After all, not many people are willing to pay that much for a case of any sort, especially a non-gaming one.

The HTPC case measures 229 x 229 x 249 mm, which corresponds to 9 x 9 x 9.8 inches, respectively. It other words, it is almost cubic, hence the name.

Abee chose to build the whole thing out of aluminum instead of using any mesh or plastic parts.

This led to a weight of 3.4 kilograms but a higher durability than one would expect from an HTPC enclosure.

The inside is only spacious enough for mini-ITX motherboards, but this was in no way unexpected, given the specialized role it is meant to play.

Other specifications include a 5.25-inch ODD (optical disk drive) bay, a 3.5-inch and a 2.5-inch bay on the inside (for HDDs and SSDs) and a 120mm fan (1,000 RPM speed). Finally, the front panel offers a pair of USB 3.0 connectors.
