If it doesn't come with the custom branding, their website has some very misleading info then.


My guess is they just haven't branded any (yet?) so they're just showing a mockup.

How much for a Mac mini with MOS?

Oh, and the 120W power supply that case comes with isn't nearly enough to power the i7 system they're listing.  I think this is just a pretty crappy attempt to troll.

Have someone specced out what this machine would cost otherwise?
Quote from: Optimus;684600
Approx. $200 for the Motherboard, $350 for the CPU, $150 for 16GB so-dimm, $140 the Blu-Ray, $60 for the Pico-PSU, $150 for the 1TB SATA drive, $64 for the case. That adds up to $1114. And that's me buying retail, assuming they have no ability to buy in bulk and get a discount.

More likely it's just another example of "Barry has no idea how to put together a quality PC system," like failing to have the C64x's fan drawing hot air off the board, or putting an i7 in the updated C64x configuration despite the prior heat-dispersal problems, or building a mega-spec i7 system and bottlenecking it with an old-ass graphics card...

why, yes you can! bazza and company have thought of you and other folks interested in just the case. you can purchase one for the low, low price of just $345. or you can go on ebay and pick it up for $65. your choice.

... and you stick a GT 430 (a low-end budget card) in it? Seriously? With no way of expanding it because the case is too small for any slots?
 

It's integrated into the Motherboard, they posted they could not even get a half height graphics card to fit in the case.
 
I found it interesting they went with a 95 Watt TPD CPU, which typically draw more power than a 65 Watt TPD CPU.
 
If this is any indication, that 120 Watt Pico-PSU won't hold up under load:

This is all comedy anyway, I want to find ONE person who is going to buy this.  I haven't seen anyone, even on their own board that has claimed to have ordered one for $2500.  There won't be any of these in the wild for anyone to complain.
 
I image they will sell some barebones cases, (which are also expensive at $350, but is ONLY marked up $150 because they force you to get the Blu-Ray ) to get the Commodore and Amiga logo.  I hang on to cases for a very long time and upgrade the internals, so if I was in the market for a Mini-ITX case I might think about it.

Waiting for the usual suspect to come by and explain why it isn't actually expensive at all, because you pay for 24/7 telephone support...
