The Caselabs Mercury S3 has a the Mini-ITX form factor. Mini-ITX is even smaller than Micro-ATX, allowing PC builders the opportunity to create a low-performance, but discreet and low-power system. Using the Mini-ITX standard, the case can house motherboards and power supplies with form factors ATX, Micro-ATX and Mini-ITX. The dimensions of the case itself (LxWxH) are 380mm x 268mm x 382mm.
The Caselabs Mercury S3 has three expansion slots, so there is very little room for extra components, which may be a deciding factor when planning on the longevity and build type of a PC system. The case has seven 5.25" drive bays, which is more than enough to house various drives, particularly optical drives. There is only one 3.5" drive bay, though, so the large number of 5.25" drive bays is a necessity. The case does have 2 2.5" drive bays, however, so you can store an SSD or laptop-sized hard disk drive separately.
