The LANBOX Lite is a Small Form Factor PC with measurements of 11.8x9.1x16.9 inches and a net weight of 13.4 lbs. The case is made out of SECC Japanese steel. Thermaltake has an interesting take on the LANBOX Lite. The first feature is the Piano mirror coating that gives the case the shiny black mirror-like finish. Ventilation is another major feature. The LANBOX Lite has aerodynamically designed ventilation holes to cool high-end graphics cards, has a ventilated PCI bracket, a front 90mm silent fan, ventilation holes on top ventilation hole on the rear and dual 60mm fans on the rear for maximum cooling. The front panel has a mesh design for maximum ventilation throughout the case more so than most small form factor PCs.
