Akasa officially launched its Newton V line of cases for Intel NUC platform, which it unveiled at this year's Computex. The all-aluminium cases are available in black, silver, and gold colors, and like most other NUC cases are designed to passively cool the processor and chipset, the two hot components on the platform. Its body panels are chunky and ridged, to double up as heatsinks. The Newton V is designed specifically for Intel's D53427RKE motherboard, which features a 17W Core i5-3427U dual-core processor. Measuring 150 x 150 x 47 mm, the Newton V dry-weighs 950 g. It features VESA wall-mount holes, two holes for Wi-Fi/Bluetooth antennae, three front-panel USB ports, of which one is USB 3.0, and a Kensington lock slot. Akasa didn't announce pricing.
