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.
This is my signature. There are many like it, but this one is mine. However, my signature is neither my best friend, nor is it my life. I also have no desire to master it and my worth is not signature-dependent.

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 ;)
