I'm interested in getting a couple of these possibly, are there any available photos of the other colors the case is now available in? I'm in the US so I will be ordering from the distributor there, are they actually available there now?

I got one of their BlueBerry coloured cases and am very impressed with it especially for the price! The colour is beautiful and it has a nice smudge free rough texture to it. It comes with the screws(yes, a case that won't come apart accidentally) already attached and the board fits snugly in place and does not rattle at all and feels extremely sturdy! There is a slot for GPIO ribbon which the other case I tried didn't have, wall mounting thingies on the back and a rather neat looking Raspberry Pi logo next to the light pipes! I can't stop looking at the purple colour! the only thing I would change is to possibly label the ports and stick some feet on but I can live with that. Also having the ports recessed does give some much needed support for the SD card and cables. Do you think this can be the official Raspberry Pi case? I think the port covers may be for fitting Model A into it. Now if only I had more Pi's so I could have all the colours!

I dont want to trigger off the age old "but the pi is designed to run hot" flame wars, but......

How is this case, for heat dissipation especially if you do a bit of over clocking??

It looks like a good snug fit with little air flow.

Heh, touched it and it's barely even warm! At 700MHz its cooler than the average modem, and cooler than the iPod power brick from 2003 that is powering it! Breeze can enter the slot for the GPIO and the mounting holes at the bottom.

Sadly the prices have gone up. Guess I was too slow. I will look for something else.

I have one of these. They are very high quality design and look absolutely GREAT! I'd recommend housing your Raspberry Pi in this case. There's not many other totally cool looking enclosures available...
