Teenage Engineering is most well-known for its synths but it often surprises its fans. The latest release from Teenage Engineering is no exception, but it's still exciting. It announced the Computer-1, an ITX-PC case. According to the company, it has been working on this design since 2014. Although it isn't a groundbreaking PC case, we love it and use it every single day, TE states on its website. We'd love to share it with all of you.
The aluminum case is 1mm thick and powder-coated. It is available in a flat-pack format that allows you to bend some panels, similar to TE's latest synths. The company advises that you think twice before you bend once. The case is 322mm high, or approximately a foot tall with chrome handles. It measures 170mm in width, or just under six inches. There is enough space inside for an SFX power source, a dual-slot GPU measuring under 180mm in length, and a CPU cooler measuring 120mm high. The side panels don't have a mesh design so it will be interesting to observe the Computer-1's thermal performance.
The Computer-1 costs $195. However, it is about the same price as an ITX case purchased from a small business. Cooler Master's NR200 is a more affordable option, while Dan A4 and FormD T can cost as high as $200. The Computer-1 is not currently available for purchase. You can sign up for a notification when it becomes available, although the Computer-1 is currently out of stock.
