Default Raspberry Pi Cases

Hey guys, so I've really really been contemplating picking up a Raspberry Pi but I'm just a little hesitant because I have heard rumors of Rev C being in the works right now. Anyways, I was interested in what kinds of cases you guys have on your Pi. I would love to see all the different kinds of cases you guys have

Pibow case. Love it. Used the air holes on the back to thread a zip tie through and strapped it to the cable bundle running up to my tv

I went lego case, nice, sturdy, and if the revisions of become so huge it needs to be changed, perfectly modifiable

Thanks. I got my pi from Newark.com and have been checking back there for cases and it seems they don't often have anything good in stock

If you want a list of over 40 awesome cases for the RPi, I would take a look at http://elinux.org/RPi_Cases. It has everything from DIY Lego cases to cases made of wood and pretty much everything in between.

I got myself a Pibow, like the other poster I used cable ties through the holes to secure it. Before I bought the case I bought some rubber feet from ebay, but the threaded pins act as feet so they weren't needed. The build instructions ape the Ikea single sheet instructions, a nice cultural touch.

I finally got a pibow as well, I had a temp case cause I could never find the pibow I wanted in stock. Adafruit.com has them in the original and the new 4 colors. I got the ninja model. Also if you live in the US, youll have it in 2days. Its a great site for everything pi, arduino, electronics related you could want.
