Transparent Pinebook Pro?
Ages ago, there was a post over on the original Pinebook with a tech demo showing a transparent case.

Is this still on Pine64's radar to make a transparent shell version (would assume now if it was made, it'd be Pro)? Would definitely get the Pro if this was going to be made, looks really really good!

But can it run Crystal?
hot! i imagine the heatsink capabilities are inferior, too.
While it looks nice, like its been said, the the heatsink capabilities are prolly inferior, I know I wouldn't buy it, even though I'm a sucker for this kind of stuff, it has to make sense too...
Doubt it was for the Pinebook Pro. The chassis of the PBP is designed around 2 metal plates, top and bottom. A clear case would have to be thicker to maintain the same strength. So, other than demonstration purposes, a clear chassis for the Pinebook Pro is unlikely.

The older Pinebooks, (11" & 14"), did use a plastic chassis, (top and bottom if I recall correctly). So a one off for demonstration is probably where the picture came from.
