You can finally buy just the case itself!
The Thelio by System76 is an impressive-looking desktop. It comes in a black finish, mostly rectangular in shape, and is very mimimalistic in design. A few months ago, the Thelio went through a redesign. Instead of the accent going around part of the front and the entire right side, it is now just a small sliver at the front. It’s also user-replaceable; users can take it out and replace with a different design if they so choose.
Back in September, System76 unveiled their newly-designed Thelio desktops, with swappable front accents. There were a few designs to choose from, but now it’s possible to create your own. The idea was inspired by GloriousEggroll’s customized Thelio design. Today, System76 introduces the Thelio Maker Accent, a DIY accent for users to add their own personal spin to their PC. A blank aluminum slate, users are free to paint, etch, gloss, or adhere objects to.
The Thelio Major by System76 is their “most powerful gaming system, placing some of the largest GPUs on the market in a machine engineered for quiet, effective cooling.” Today, the case gets a redesign. First, the I/O shield on the back is now removable. This allows the user to replace the motherboard with a different one if they so desire. Though this is for the Major, “other Thelio models” should get this feature as well in the future.
The Thelio desktop family by System76 recently got a visual refresh. Now the base Thelio, as well as the Thelio Mira, are receiving a refresh in the processor department. Previously, if you went with Intel, you would have a 12th-gen processor. For AMD, you had the Ryzen 5000 series. Now, Intel has been upgraded to 13th-gen. Per the press documentation, this new CPU clocks in “about 40% faster with multithreaded tasks” over the previous generation.
The Thelio product family from System76 is a series of desktops “that’s powerful, compact, quiet, beautiful, upgradable, backed by liftime support, and manufactured in the United States.” First launched in December of 2018, the Thelio has received several revisions based on customer feedback. It’s now gone through another revision in the visual department, starting today. The wood veneer on the front of the chassis has been replaced with a “slimmer, sleeker accent panel.
