Maingear launches two new and smaller desktop PCs

Several days ago, Maingear teased us with news of two upcoming desktop PC designs that were supposed to be much smaller than the company's well known Shift chassis. Today, Maingear officially unveiled those new PC desktop designs; a revamped version of its previous F131 case and an all new small form factor PC, the Potenza.

Both the new F131 and the Potenza have the vertical heat dissipation design that Maingear launched with the Shift, which allows cool air to be drawn down at the bottom while the hot air rises to the top. The new design of the mid-size F131 is 38 percent smaller than the previous version and includes features like a slot-loading optical drive. The starting price for the Maingear F131 is $1,049.

Maingear is calling its new Portenza desktop PC "the world’s first mini-ITX gaming solution designed for overclocking." It is 45 percent smaller than the new F131 and 76 percent smaller than the Shift. Even with its tiny dimensions, (15.6 inches tall, 7.4 inches wide and 9.25 inches deep), the chassis can handle large graphics cards such as the recently launched NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680. The starting price of the Maingear Potenza is $899.

who ever buys this case for that kind of money is an idiot...IMO

These are not just cases you know?
Although they are a little more expensive than building your own, I think they look pretty good for a custom built machine with no crap installed.

The $1049 gets you a full PC(less monitor, KB and Mouse) not just the case.
