Today we are looking at a case designed for the smallest breed of motherboard, the mini-ITX, which was developed back in 2001. These are slightly smaller than Micro-ATX and their key feature is their low power consumption, making them ideal for Home Entertainment systems.
Recently we have seen the rapid development of APU's and as such the low-powered mini-ITX systems can perform all but the most demanding tasks, as such their place in the home/office has never more likely.
The BitFenix Prodigy looks to be in a league of its own, as it has so many features that you would only expect in a full-sized tower chassis. The version we have today is the lovely ‘Arctic White' colour scheme, but it is also available in Black as can be seen below.
