Most people would want a functional, stylish PC case but stylish does not necessarily mean it has to be a life-size Iron Man suit, drivable or rideable. Sometimes, minimal is in itself a style as proven by the Teenage Engineering Computer-1 mini-ITX PC Case.
That’s right. The Swedish consumer electronics company now has a PC case too and as you can see, it is very stylish. OK. I may be biased here because of the pure orange RAL 2004 power coated finish and you know how we do have a thing for orange hue here.
The Teenage Engineering Computer-1 is a super-compact PC case made from lightweight aluminum and comes flat-pack. As such, some assembly is required. While small, it is voluminous enough to accommodate a wide range of components, including the included SFX power supply unit (PSU), up to two GPUs, mainboard, and whatnot.
Each kit comes with all the parts required to assemble the case, including the aluminum sheets, illustrated build guide with instructions, and bend angles. Rounding up the PC case design are chrome handles for toting it around and a lovely Teenage Engineering branding, stylishly debossed at the front.
All told, the case measures 170 mm wide, 190 mm deep, and just 322 mm tall (including the handles, or 285 mm w/o the handles).
According to the rewind the tape newsletter we received, the Teenage Engineering Computer-1 mini-ITX PC Case was released on October 28, 2021. And at somewhat reasonable pricing of US$195, it is no surprise that computer-1 is sold out.
But fret not, you can always put your name down to be notified when it becomes available again. Who knows, it may have other colors next time? Meanwhile, you may learn more about it HERE.
