Where I really expect to see Trinity is in slim MiniITX builds that don't physcally have space for an expansion card.
There are plenty of small, half-height Mini-ITX cases around such as the Antec ISK-300 or the Coolermaster Elite 100 which could easily house a Trinity with an active cooler.

If you were trying to do an i3 build with discrete graphics, you're limited to something like a Silverstone Sugo, Coolermaster Elite 120 or even the Bitfenix one that's so large (For a miniITX case).
I was discussing miniITX builds at the LAN last weekend and there's definitely a market for tiny little boxes that fit in places that won't accomodate a build tall enough for an expansion slot.

Heh, that kind of reminds me of these cheap-ass old beaters on the road that can't be worth $500 as scrap, yet someone pays $1000 for the stereo and $2000 on the rims.

Isn't that a $400 HTPC case? I'd probably look for a solution based on a mobile platform with that much money to burn and get an i7 with a 680M instead ;)
