    Circuit City classified it as a minitower on their price label.

    The thing is tanj small, I'll tell you. You wouldn't guess that it's one of the fastest benched computers on the planet.

    I can guaranty, my good sir, that a mac pro is in fact not a minitower in any stretch of the imagination.

    What's sad is, I don't even think the Mac Pro uses a full-sized Tylersburg board.

    If it did, the case would be even bigger and have more RAM slots. 96 GB total, were that the case.

    What is this Circuit City you speak of? I would venture to say full tower...

    Hey, I'm just reporting what I saw.

    It's certainly smaller than it should be.

    I feel that I should revile something you may or may not find amusing. This case is super overkill for what im using, heres the stats. (try not to laugh to hard)

    CPU: Pentium 4 prescott 2.8Ghz HT
    Hard drive: 80 Gig 7200rpm SG brand
    Memory: 1.5 gigs of 333mhz ram.
    Graphics: x1650 pro AGP
    Powersupply: 250watt dell.

    The case maybe bigger then my mac pro but the hardware sure isn't.

    Why did I buy such a big case? Because my dad hates the smell and noise of the $30 case i kept that hard ware in.
