I'm curious, does anyone know of any case that has a simmilar case to the Dell hybrid pc. Except in more normal computer sizes and preferably in black and white. The colors aren't needed, mainly the size. Basically should be enough to fit normal pc parts in. dell hybrid - Google Images

That Dell Studio Hybrid is not actually a desktop; it's made with notebook components. Full size desktop hardware would not fit in that thing. Pretty neat actually.

Check out your local computer shop. Micro Center has some pretty small cases available. Not quite the same style as that one, but very compact.

Yeah I know the hybrid is too small. I'm sort of a looking for a case with a similar design, but normal sizes.

Just don't like the bulgy boxes that usually attenuate design with large and gaudy LED's.

What do you mean? Like with the same dimensions, just scaled up, or with the same width, but taller and longer?

Well not necessary the same dimension.But a normal sized case using a similar look as the dell hybrid. The rounded design, standing on those legs etc. As to the width - I sadly somehow doubt you could get any real normal sized PSU into it if it remained the same.

Just a similar looking case with normal desktop proportions :P

Pretty neat? Uggh, I never did like even the first slim desktop cases that became popular a while ago. These micro size cases do nothing but trap heat in a small space and have no room or ventilation for upgrading parts or expanding it's intended use.

If you're looking for a small case all I can say is get a HTPC case.

Gah, I'm not sure how to word myself.

I am not looking for a small case. I'm looking for a more or less normal sized case which has a similar style (not size) as the dell hybrid.

if worst comes to worst I could probably grab a normal case and have a friend try to rework the exterior. But would strongly prefer if it was something in the style out of the box.

Not gonna happen. The closest thing you can get to that is an Alienware case or some other obscure PC makers case.

Personally I would never make the looks of a case the main priority in choosing one. It's one of the most functionally important pieces of hardware in a build.
