The Mini P180 Is a Stylish, Compact and Portable Version of Antec's Popular P180 Enclosure

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - January 7, 2008) - International CES -- Antec, Inc., the leading global provider of high-performance computer components for the PC upgrade and Do-It-Yourself markets, has launched the Mini P180, the latest addition to its Performance One series. The compact, high-performance enclosure provides the quality and quiet of the Performance One series in a small and highly portable frame, perfect for gamers and Quiet Computing enthusiasts.

The Mini P180 continues the proud legacy of the Performance One series, delivering the efficiency, functionality, and style of cases like the award-winning P180 while offering unprecedented lightweight portability. The Mini P180 features a dual chamber structure that isolates heat by separating the power supply from other internal components. The cooling system includes a 120mm rear mounted fan, a 200mm top mounted fan and an advanced cable management system to improve airflow throughout the case. This compact chassis features three-layer side panels made of aluminum and plastic, as well as silicone grommets to reduce hard drive vibration and noise.

The Mini P180 accommodates up to a microATX motherboard with four expansion slots for increased versatility. The cable management system keeps wires neatly in place, and the 270-degree double-hinged door allows for easy installation by providing direct accessibility into the case. In addition to eight drive bays, there are convenient front mounted USB 2.0, eSATA and Audio I/O ports. The Mini P180 has a glossy black finish, and its compact dimensions allow for convenient portability.

"Gamers are always in search of cases that are both able to handle the demands of networked games, and are easy to carry to local area network parties," said Scott Richards, Senior Vice President of Antec. "Antec is committed to surpassing the expectations of even the most enthusiastic gamers. The Mini P180 improves on the design of the award-winning P180 by allowing builders to have a cool, quiet and high-performance system in a versatile and compact case."

The Performance One series also includes the P180, P182, and the P190 + 1200. All Performance One cases meet Antec's 'Quiet Computing™' standards for silent computing at high performance levels.

The Mini P180 will be available in December through major retailers, e-tailers, and distributors. The Mini P180 will retail for approximately $159.00 and is backed by Antec's Quality 3-Year Warranty. For additional product information and full technical specifications, please visit www.antec.com.
