Lian-Li Industrial Co. Ltd, the award-winning aluminum computer chassis manufacturer, today announces the automobile-esque PC-Q15. With its space-saving design, the PC-Q15 is an ideal data storage center for the numerous hi-tech mobile devices of the modern mobile consumer.

Supporting mini-ITX motherboards, the PC-Q15 with its the rectangular shape and wheel-like stubs resembles a miniature SUV.

The forward facing 5.25" drive bay is at the top on the chassis with the 3.5" and 2.5" drive bays hanging below it. The hot-swappable 3.5" HDD is aided by perfectly sized rubber strips that are effortlessly attach to the side of your 3.5" drive, allowing you to easily take your HDD in and out. Hanging below the 3.5" drive, the 2.5" drive bay holds three 2.5" HDDs/SSDs and can be adjusted to face the front or side.

Adding to the PC-Q15's unique design, the motherboard plate lays flat against the bottom of the chassis. A prerouted cable simplifies connections between the motherboard and the the two USB 3.0 ports on the front panel. Keeping your system at optimum running temperatures, the included 120 mm fan with Lian Li's signature removable washable filter blows cool air directly across the motherboard and 2.5" SSDs.

Hahaha, I need to push it across the office floor, it is just too darn big to pick up. Some of the folks at Lian Li must have a lot of spare time. You have to admit it’s very cute, with that smile under the grill.:D

I like everything minus the wheels, substitute those for some actual case feet and it would be alot more attractive to me!

Wow, the new design team in Lian Li is really trying to earn reputation. Since their introduction some crazy stuff is coming out of Lian Li. Nice to see they have the balls. That's what I call to reinvent one's company. Keep going!

No he means if you wish to use a dual slot card like a 7970 or a 580 or most anything, you can't because there is only 1 PCI bracket slot, so a lot of cards will not work, in this case which is dumb especially for what they expect you to pay for this garbage on wheels.

That's a moot point, for $175 it should be 2 brackets!
