The Mac Pro ‘cheese grater’ look for your Windows PC

Dune Case is close to crowdfunding the Dune Pro, a standard PC case that unsubtly mimics Apple’s airflow-centric design. On the outside, it’s basically a Mac Pro without Apple’s logo you’ll need to buy a “Dice Y” sound dampening cover to get the full look, but the stainless steel frame and aluminum enclosure are uncannily similar. The main sacrifice is the use of a more conventional side panel instead of the real Mac Pro’s pull-up cover.

It’s on the inside where you’ll see the more noticeable changes. The case will support motherboards ranging from mini ATX through to extended ATX, and it can accept video cards up to 380mm 15 inches long you can stuff a GeForce RTX 2080 Ti inside if this will serve as a gaming rig. It also promises ample room for air or liquid cooling up to a 360mm watercooling radiator, and the combination of five SSD trays with three hard drive trays means you won’t be hurting for storage space.

The Dune Pro should reach Kickstarter on October 21st, with pricing and expected ship times expected by then. The looming question, of course, is whether or not it’ll survive legal scrutiny. Dune already has another Apple-inspired enclosure in the works, the $199 Dune Case, but it’s based on the 2013 Mac Pro and takes more creative liberties. The Dune Pro is a more… literal translation. Dune does say the Dice Y panel is “patent pending,” though, so it appears to be at least somewhat aware of the potential for a court battle.

There’s no mention of when the case will actually ship—probably sometime in 2020.
