What is with this hole on the back side of the screen?
Colours are weird. If I look at the wiki page for 'turquoise' it just shows my a picture that's clearly light blue if I look at it. Although I'd hope the primary and secondary colours are okay, as soon as you deviate this far from the true blue everyone seems to see it differently, or at least has different words for the same thing. I see that blue as a few turns towards purple, FWIW, which I don't see as a particularly good or bad thing, but just a thing.The matte dark-grey/black one is really nice. The blue is almost there, but a bit too much on the Cyan side for my tastes.
Also, if they could be shot in a light box thingy to eliminate directionality of illumination, that'd help in identifying the real colour of everything.
Most monitors have pretty awful colour rendering though. The only real solution would be to send colour samples around the forum in the same way as the keymats.that'd help in identifying the real colour of everything.
Or, you know RGB. Taking a sample from the right side of the lid of that blue case, GIMP reports it to be 0x023fcb - I'm not sure how I managed to see that as purple yesterday, but it's certainly greener than pale blue - still a hell of a long way from cyan, but I can perhaps see what you mean.Most monitors have pretty awful colour rendering though.

If I had to guess I'd say it's probably the same situation as with most RPi-like SBCs we see these days; you can push them a bit further and for a bit longer with a proper heatsink but they still run just fine with heat dissipating through the board for any practical applications.Yeah what ARE we doing about the heat anyway? If we don't need to do anything that's great though.
