I think you're talking about the Cubit; it's not made by Biostar :)

Still, for the price, I think Biostar beats Shuttle hands down.

The R9100 graphics beat the snot out of GF4 MX; why doesn't ATI build an AMD chipset?

Nvidia's sales were really buoyed by NF2 sales.

I know it's not BioStar, but it's oh so sweet. Never seen a Swiftech Heatsink packed into a SFF

I don't know what you're blabbering about. I think my Shuttle SS51 looks pretty damn snazzy! 8)

I think the SN41G2 looks great... until you put drives in and then it destroys the aesthetics.

On the inside though... ugly ugly ugly. :)

But when it comes to cases it's what's on the outside that counts right?

I find the G2 series shuttles far more attractive.

So what did you guys expect? Cubes were bound to evolve as did traditional tower cases. Every manufacture is going to try to distinguish themselves from one another. They will continue to get better and better until the next fad in case design comes along. As the industry evolves further systems and components will probably shrink smaller and smaller to the point of being able to wear a complete full blown top of the line gaming rig on your wrist! :o And we'll love every mutation as it comes along! :D

Really like the idea having a cover for the 5.25" units. The usually destroy the aesthetics, as somebody mentioned.

If I can drop in a Radeon 9600 AIW into that Biostar and get triple-head with AIW features, I am sooooooo there :P

Check out the port bay on that Biostar. HIDEOUS.

Waiting for the Shuttle with silver DVD/CD-rw/cd-w. News has it that it is in the works. Can't wait, and yes you can drop in the Radeon 9600 AIW in the ST61G4 and get triple head features

That Biostar is ugly as sin IMO. I don't really like the looks of that Shuttle either. The G2 Shuttles look damn sexy though.
