Antec LanBoy Air

Antec LanBoy Air Review

Introduction

While cases always seem as quite a typical component in a persons PC and often don’t get as much monetary investment as other components, it can be very important. Some companies are also pushing the perception that they are quite generic in nature, Antec being one of these manufacturers. Today we take a look at an interesting case called the LanBoy Air that has no exhaust fans and it’s full of holes. Let’s see if these “features” aid the case, or hinder it.
