Motherboard shipping carton doubles as PC case

Taiwanese computer manufacturer Asus is shipping its MiniATX motherboards in a cardboard box that can be used as a PC case:

There are punch-out holes for ventilation and a real panel that houses the PC’s connectors and interfaces.

Asus said the box is intended to allow PC enthusiasts to get their new computers up and running quickly while they search for the perfect case.

“Some people spend a long time looking for a case, so this box is all they need until they find something,” said Lee.
