Now available at Newegg.com for buyers in the USA. Requires that you purchase a Pico PSU and power brick too.

This one looks extraordinary. I'll look into it.

Best case ever!!

I didn't know about it before!! It doesn't require a brick... perfect case for a mac mini configuration!!

It is weird a didn't see anything like that before. The problem with the other small cases were the brick you have to include, which for me IT IS A PROBLEM, but with that... awesome!!
Pity that I can't go back. Next build for sure!

P.S.: thin mini-itx form factor... now I know why I didn't know it... the dream just broke fast...

P.S.2: but seriously, the included internal 150W small PSU, should be the example for cases like this one (previous ones you have it above). I am sure should be a way to fit it. The pico+brick thingy, is still NO appealing for me...

P.S.3: scouting A LOT, I could see that maybe there are possibilities with the following internal PSU to forget about "brickify" (which is horrible) your mini itx:

a) I think it is the same brand as the one in the luna case:
https://www.hdplex.com/hdplex-internal-160w-ac-dc-adapter-with-active-pfc-and-19vdc-output.html
Which has an internal thin mini itx connector. So it needs the following adapter to work:
https://www.hdplex.com/hdplex-160w-dc-atx-power-supply-16v-24v-wide-range-voltage-input.html

b) Just get the cheap (white) luna case in order to get the power supply (and it is small as hell), and still get the adapter for the normal itx psu connector (as it comes with the thin mini itx one).

Just my 2 cents guys. I wish to have the money (I invested already and can't return it) to invest in this, and get one of the previous 2 possibilities and the this case. I am sure there should be a way...

"... there is a thriving community of NUC enthusiasts that have even compiled one-click post install scripts ..."

Can someone post a link to such a script?

Not yet, but unless there are any show-stoppers identified in the next month or so, I shall be going for the Asrock H170M one discussed earlier.
@WonkeyDonkey, It looks like there was a huge show-stopper... lol
