I would like to thank Fractal Design for providing the Define Mini review sample.
Most of you may not know Fractal Design, but the company has been making a splash with their unique enclosures at a competitive price. The company also sells power supplies, case fans, and a few accessories on top of that.
Not much else to say really, but this is their official vision:
Our vision is to have a constant, healthy growth together with our partners worldwide. Our goal is to be widely recognized for our designed products and to have them available in all major market regions within EU and US. We should be a good alternative to the already established retail brands of today. It's of great importance for us that our partners understand the values of Fractal Design; therefore we are putting great effort into choosing the right partners from the start. We will work actively to maintain sales territories and profitable business for our partners.
We are taking a look at the Fractal Design Define Mini today, which takes the successful Define series and shrinks it down to the mATX standard. This means that Fractal Design now offers the Define case in all three major sizes, catering to every need.
