The Antec LanBoy Air weights 20.3 lbs (9.2 kg), the case can be outfitted with an insane fifteen 120mm fans - so you know the "Air" moniker belongs in its name. Perhaps more intriguing, nearly every part of the case is modular, even the motherboard and PSU mounts. Moreover, the case's "AirMounts" HDD mounting system suspends drives in mid-air for superior vibration and noise resistance.

Based on our testing, we can safely say that the Antec LanBoy Air is well ventilated and offers the best system cooling possible. It’s a lot like an open air test platform except you can actually carry it around without things fallout off or out...

The Antec LanBoy Air delivers on what it promises, and that is flexible customizability. When was the last time a case allowed you to mount optical drives facing the side panel? The addition of the removable motherboard tray is also noteworthy. ...

We wanted to love the LanBoy Air, and in some ways we still do. The eye-catching design is brilliant, the semi-modular approach is unique, and there's ample room to house plenty of high-end kit. But given the £150 asking price, it's hard to...

As we talked about before, the Lanboy Air truly shines in cooling performance. It mimics the properties of an open-air test bench, while still providing the ease of movement of an entirely enclosed case. The Lanboy Air certainly isn't a quiet case,...

While the LanBoy Air is unique and displays Antec's usual high build quality, there’s a lot wrong with it. Making a PC with meshed exterior panels leads to a number of problems, while other design choices also cause concern.The mesh exterior...

When Antec released the first LanBoy case a few years ago, it raised a few eyebrows, because the quality of the materials and the build quality weren't quite up to the standard of Antec's mainstream mega Sonata case. There was a very good reason...
