As awesome as Apple's latest Mac Pro systems can be, it is hard to deny that the system has its downsides. From their limited upgrade options to systems high pricing, it is easy to see why many would hope to avoid Apple's latest system. Even so, it is hard to deny the allure of Apple's case designs. 

So what if you want the look of a Mac Pro and the versatility of a home-built PC? The answer is simple, get a Dune Pro, a Mac-like case that's designed for consumer hardware. 

At the time of writing the Dune Pro is not available for purchase, with pre-orders being due to start on October 21st via Kickstarter. The case is made primarily out of Aluminium and supports motherboards that are up to EATX in size, full-sized graphics cards and up to 360mm water cooling radiators. The case also supports a range of configurations that vary from HDD heavy builds to configurations with multiple graphics cards and other PCIe devices.

The Dune Pro is designed to look like a Mac Pro, that's the Dune's gimmick. At launch, two versions of the dune will be available, one of which features a simplified, drilled hole, front while the other offers a premium "Dice Y" cover which offers a more Mac Pro-like aesthetic and a patent-pending sound dampening technology. The case also features dua USB-C I/O ports that support USB 3.0 and USB 3.1 (10Gbps) support. 

Airflow in this case uses a front-to-back configuration, where air comes from up to three 120mm fans at the front of the chassis and exits out the rear. The Dune Pro includes no fan mounts at the top of the enclosure. 

At this time the pricing and availability of the Dune Pro are unknown. This information will be revealed when the Dune Pro's Kickstarter begins on October 21st. More information about the Dune Pro is available here

I'll be surprised if Apple don't try something to stop these from selling. Great idea but I have a feeling any kind of similarity to Apples case will be seen by them as a copyright infringement. Look at the Samsung thing, It has round edges so is copying, it has a central button like ours, its a similar shape as ours, Samsung clearly copied our iPhone design...Quote

Never stopped Thermal Take from creating their own spin offs of some brands. Providing there is enough distinction and that Apple doesnt Patent everything including the grill shape or ventilation spacing etc. They could do well with this.Quote
