    Antec Lanboy


    (Page 1 of 3 )

    LAN parties. Don'tcha just love 'em? We at OCAddiction do and we know all you addicts out there certainly do. There is always a drawback to LAN parties though. Let me put it this way. I have a large case made of thick steel. The side panels alone are enough to give you a hernia. Lugging this thing along to LAN parties is a slipped disc waiting to happen - especially at my age.


    Now I could wax lyrical on the benefits of healthy exercise coupled with the social interaction of the average LAN party, but I'd rather wax lyrical about a case that doesn't give me a hernia. Imagine my relief the day the Antec LANBOY turned up on the doorstep.

    We'll start off with the official specs on the LANBOY, and move onto our initial impressions of the case.

    The first thing that strikes you when unpacking the case is that the LANBOY is all aluminum - I hear my back muscles are planning a celebration - meaning its light. VERY light. This is pretty much the lightest case I've ever lifted. I was actually quite shocked at the miniscule weight of the case with the power supply accounting for the majority of the weight - more on that later.

    The finish on the case, rather than the brushed aluminum look that's so common these days is a nicely applied light grey powder coat. Nice to see Antec going for something a little different. The front bezel is the same light grey and features a door to close over the drives - a familiar feature to Antec users.

    Behind this, there are no fewer than four (count 'em) 5-1/4" drive bays. Impressive stuff for a case of this size. My gripe here is that the door feels flimsy and flexes easily when opened. I don't really think its a problem as the door will be spending most of its time closed but its definitely noticeable. Moving down, the design of the lower front bezel provides some large slots for cooling so we "shouldn't" be seeing restricted airflow there.
