    Lian Li Industrial Co. Ltd. today announces two additional Mini-Q Series – PC-Q09 and PC-Q09F. Even more compact and light, Lian Li designed these two new models with space, convenience and style in mind – a combination of art and technology! Both the PC-Q09 and PC-Q09F support Mini-ITX motherboards, and are available in four trendy colors including the eye-catching piano white. With a genuine user-friendly idea, both the PC-Q09 and PC-Q09F are offered with an optional VESA mounting kit, including a foot-stand to support the weight. Users now have the option to easily mount the case on the back of their monitor and turn it into an all-in-one PC.

    The Lian Li Mini-Q PC-Q09
    Dimensioned at 265x110x200mm(W.H.D.) and weights only in 1.4kg, the PC-Q09 features one Slim CD-Rom optical drive, one standard 2.5” hard drive, and one standard 110W Mini-ITX power supply unit with external AC power adapter. Separating out the brick makes the PC-Q09 most slim and light. The Mini-Q PC-Q09 also incorporates the multi-heat zone design for a better thermal solution – one zone on the top to hold the motherboard; one on the lower part to hold the HDD and Slim CD-Rom.

    Made with only 1.5mm aluminum alloy, the PC-Q09 has no vibration problem at all. The side panels are secured with screws to reduce the size of the case as well as vibration and noise level. On the other hand, the 2.5” hard drive are mounted with tool-less thumb screw with shock-absorption rubber ring to reduce more noise.

    The Mini-Q PC-Q09 has a passive cooling design, with vent holes on the top and side panels to allow air entering and cooling down the system. A 80mm fan is available on the side penal, exhausting the hot air out and fast removing the heat.

    It is worth to mention that the Lian Li PC-Q09 offers the most user-friendly design. Two USB3.0 and HD audio multimedia I/O ports are located right at the front cover allowing easy access. Last but not least, the PC-Q09 offers users a choice to mount the case on the back of their monitor, with the VESA case standard kit, and make the case become an all-in-one PC.

    The Lian Li Mini-Q PC-Q09F
    The PC-Q09F is dimensioned at 265x124x200mm(W.H.D.) and weights in 2.1kg – slightly heavier and higher than the PC-Q09 due to its built-in 150W Flex ATX power supply unit. Following the same concepts as the PC-Q09, Lian Li's Mini-Q PC-Q09F is also designed with the maximum silent and thermal performance, as well as the friendly feature of installing your system behind your monitor with the optional VESA mounting kit.

    The designers of that case must be going BONKERS seeing what the Marketing people are trying to do with it... Nice design gone horribly wrong.

    For a moment I thought, hmm, nice, I'll keep that case in mind for an ITX build. But THEN I SAW THAT. It has put me off the case. Marketing own-goal.

    Seeing things like this make me realise the often forgotten ergonomics behind Apple's designs.

    If it's sturdy enough, it could be a nice monitor stand... or it can just sit next to the monitor.
    I don't know about other people, but I find that my desk is gigantic and can house 4 of those cases and not have problems with space.

    Nice. Though I will not be buying the optional VESA mount.

    that mounting scheme is exactly what is used in hospitals, classrooms, etc. for instance, dell makes a similiar size case with all the PC components included. but these cases are so expensive it defeats the purpose of any organization using them.

    I agree, as we use those at my organization, but I think the way Dell/HP design their setup is much, much better, largely because they tend to provide custom monitors/monitor stands alongside them. Rather than create a pretty half-baked universal design, they should simply put out a Zalman monitor which is VESA compatible with this particular case. The market for the case itself is small enough as it is, to the point that requiring a specific monitor for VESA mount compatibility would not be unreasonable...

    The dentist office I go to has those. They work very well. Very space saving, but this one looks pretty bad. Dell got it right IMO.

    its a pity the vesa mount system is so butt-ugly, I've been toying with the idea of a mini-ITX system bolted to the back of a monitor for some time... but not like this...
