Cyntech seeks distributors for Raspberry Pi enclosure

Cyntech Components has designed a compact, low cost enclosure for the Raspberry Pi computer and is now seeking distributors to market it to consumers.

The enclosure has openings for connectors, including a recessed slot to protect audio and video connections, windows for led indicators, non slip rubber feet and slots that enable it to be mounted on a vertical surface.

Cyntech's managing director, Dave Mellor, said: "Raspberry Pi is a ground breaking computer. We've developed this enclosure to complement it perfectly: great performance, attractive functionality and low cost. It adds less than 10% to the cost of the device whilst providing protection for the printed circuit board and ease of use for consumers."

I like that this case includes a mounting option to hang it. Since many consumers (not just students) will be purchasing Raspberry Pi to be used as a media player or some other function, it won't always just be sitting on a desk in a classroom.

I believe the Raspberry Pi will definitely revolutionize the computing industry for general users. As stated at http://www.tinyputers.com, not all consumers need an expensive and powerful computer. Raspberry Pi will work great as a web browser or to check your email.
