Well Aspire isn't the best, quality wise. What bout teh Antec P160W? PV has one and it looks sick. Kick butt case. The Antec Super Lanboy is great too, both me & kemp have had one.

Thats a awesome case! does it come in any other colour than silver because everything around my computer is black and i think it would look better in black. And is there any other LED lights in it other then on the fan on the front?

Both the P160W and the Lanboy are anodized alum (silver) only. If you're looking into a black case, you might want to look into my case.. the Lian Li PC-7B Plus II. A bit pricey for such a "plain" package but Lian Li is the highest quality PC Case brand on the market today. No other brand hold's a candle to Lian Li in quality. If you want a side panel window, you will need to buy one from a site like Performance-Pcs.com

If you order the Lian Li from Performance PC-s they give you a deal. Order the case and you can add on a factory side panel for $10 so it comes to $99.95+ Ship.

it comes to like 200 something dollars cdn with shipping if i want LED lighting in it also. I only have like 100 dollars cdn lol. But that is a really good deal for the factory window. I think that is what ill get but its going to take me a while because i want blue LED lighting to match my Logitech G15 Keyboard.

I use the X Cruiser and I love it. Also, I had a slightly scratched side panel window and all I did was call the company, tell them what happened, pop them an email with my shipping info and bam :]
