"With the latest Quiet Computingâ„¢ technologies...."
Yeah, like holes in the door. What's the point of the door if you're putting friggin holes in it?!?!

Improve air flow... and some holes on a closed door are better than an open door.

What about all the holes around the bezel and open underneath? Could *almost* understand them on the mini-P180, but there is plenty of room around the front to get air in. How about just remove the filter covers and make the filters look a little more refined?

I guess it's better than the mutant contraption spotted earlier anyways...

Barely any different... The only thing that I really like is the bottom chamber having the fan at the front and not in the middle but will just stick with my P180 for now!

The filter doors in the P183 are alot less restrictive than the ones in the P180/2, but that still wasn't enough to stop them from making those ugly holes in the door...

I was about to pop for a p182 but I'm going to wait for this new design.

It looks like it has better airflow for power hogs like my system.
