    Based on the costs of electricity, it is probably safe to say that PSU's will not get much bigger. And a highly efficient PSU is going to last longer (since degredation less of an issue). for the 80 plus bronze lines and up, a 3-5 year warranty is a must to even apply at all. Otherwise the standard 90 day would be more than sufficient.

    As components improve, I want a longer warranty (at least where i can use it, PSU/Optics/PCIEx1 and x4/sound). I usually put warranties (with reciepts) in a seperate place if they have any value and only through them out after they are void. I am glad that more companies are willing to back their products.

    (This is something that I will not care about after I have a job, but my computer now will have to last me til AT LEAST my residency in 4 years, if not later).

    also, as long as MOST people invest in dual core tech, then the longer an i7 (8 thread) or istanbul (6 thread) can last. Unless Larrabbee shakes up the computer world altogether. Then our components will have some future proofing then (out of a pure motive for catering to the masses for money)



    What is antec's position on expanding further, what is their next field to venture into (i.e. monitors, mouse pads, keyboard+mice....)???

    Are they going to build a Skeleton 2? The 1st one has so many flaws.

    Question - Ive never bought any of your products, My reason being is i find them all way over priced for what you get compared to other manufacturers. When will Antec be more competitive with there prices?

    Sorry m8 i find you comments to be a bit crazy tbh, Warranty is a sales gimmick yes but its there so why not use it? I understand that 3yr old tech is something you may not get replaced under warranty and then re-use, but not bothering is even worse when you could get it replaced and either sell it to cover costs for your new tech or give it to a good home/charity ect?

    I've got a few questions too:

    1. Is Antec planning on releasing any cases with silver side panels or bezels such as the Antec P180?
    2. Is Antec planning on releasing new cases in the New Solution series, e.g. revisions to the NSK3480 and NSK4480?
    3. Is Antec planning on releasing a budget mATX case (cheaper than the P180 mini) that has the power supply installed at the bottom (NSK3480)?
    4. Is Antec planning on releasing a mATX cases in the Gaming Cases series, such as a Antec 300 mini?

    Theyll produce all parts of the pc, or maybe produce a "rig line".
    just like acer.

    You mean like barebones or pre-made computers? It would be hard for Antec though I'm guessing, e.g. getting OEMs for motherboards and such.
