easily fits into industry-standard 19″ racks. The chassis occupies only 4U
of rack space, and at only 18″ deep, neatly fits all computer cabinetry.

them in applications for which rackmounting is a natural,” explains
customer Carol Hoffman of Look and Feel Graphics, “the Marathon case does
everything I need in a rackmount. It’s a secure home for my G4 and the new

I look forward to adding a new machine to my network.”
