I posted the link in the market place section of the forum also.

What do you think? You like the silver look or the classic black better?

So has the case been chromed, or is that just from polishing the magnesium case itself?

No chrome plating, just polished. It's similar to the original polished NeXTcube(s) that were done by a PC case modder named Cold Dog.

Give the Web page a few hours to load. :)

The modder spent about 30 hours hand polishing the cube in his bathroom (no, Iím not kidding).

Since the slab top is also magnesium under the "skin", you could polish it up in the same way. Then you could always cover it back up to return it to "normal" appearance.

Not into the crome "bling" thing myself, but to each his own.
