Introduction

Let's face it, as fast as our hardware changes, so do the demands for the looks and styles for our cases. One of the biggest challenges that a case manufacturing company faces today is the need to stay ahead of the curve and anticipate those coming changes and give us new toys to look at. Aspire is one of those companies that has in the past produced many quality cases geared to the enthusiast market. Today we have an opportunity to check out their latest entry into the market, the X-Navigator Aluminum Case. While the official name doesn't include the moniker "Gaming Case", from the looks of the outside, this is who it will appeal to. 

I mean, just take a look at this baby. From it's oversized side window to the swoop of the front bezel... well before I get ahead of myself, let's take a look at the spec sheet for the case. Then we can get to the goodies.
