The cavalier is a good looking case for the money.  Here,
http://www.newegg.com/product/product.asp?item=N82E16811119060 it looks
to have a blue-ish strip across the front, but mine is stone gray, which
I like much better.

The inside panel is painted a very nice metallic silver which does come
across well in this photo
These two items are painted a perfectly matching silver as well.

Overall, I'm very please with the design.  Coming from an Apple Fan
http://www.bronosky.com/index.php?p=12 this is a major complement.  You
can also see how my wife likes to decorate from that photo of me taken
in the bathroom.  So if she accepts the appearance of a _computer_ then
you know your doing good.  I just got it yesterday, and Myth probably
won't be installed for a few weeks, so I can't report the WAF quite yet.


	Thank you for your time,
