Due in part to the tariffs on aluminum, enthusiast case manufacturer, CaseLabs, has shut down.
It happened quite abruptly, too. Their caselabs.net site, linked in their Twitter profile, has been up and down while I've been writing this post; their store page, while it can load in a browser, will not accept and further orders. In fact, some existing orders are expected to be canceled. They believe that they can ship all the orders for individual parts, but some of their backlog of full cases will not.
Obviously, this sucks for everyone involved. Some of their cases, while on the expensive side to say the least, looked interesting, particularly in terms of customization. I’m looking at one that had the option for both front-panel HDMI and USB type C.
No specifics have been announced about their bankruptcy and liquidation plan.
