This is for those of you who ask about this form factor every so often. I hope enough people join so that he makes beige ones.

The X500 Pro is the final product in a line of computer cases designed a few years back (the X500 Plus and later the Evo with a mechanical keyboard) as a tribute to the computers of the '80s and '90s (Commodore, Atari, Sinclair etc…). It's a wedge styled computer case with built-in, full size mechanical keyboard.

That's pretty cool. The keyboard will outlive the usability of the machine. Not sure about the angle of the keyboard though.

I remember havign to reach behind the Commodore to turn it on and off.

The keyboard it comes with is a budget Ducky one. Even though Cherry MX is advertised with the rating of millions of operations, key chatter is bound to develop sooner or later. So the case will probably outlive everything else. You can just replace the Ducky keyboard with another one. As for the keyboard angle, you could use keycaps with a different profile because Cherry MX stems!

The chassis that I originally opened this thread with is dead so I ended up finding a substitute in the Checkmate A1500 which has the pizza box form factor. It's for Amiga fans but can fit mITX/mATX with a full-size reference blower-style graphics card. There'll also be risers so you can slide your keyboard under it when not in use.

Lel, this looks like one or those standalone word processors they used to give because I was too ADD for a real computer and would fuck around wuth Clippy for 45 minutes.
