Default What case would you prefer? A tower or Full-tower?

20.5" Tower:

26.4" Full-tower:

They're not the one i want to get, as they're not bundled, tehe.
As you can see, the tower has a side window, but the full-tower does not, however. The full-tower looks more impressive because of it's size (26" over 20"). I don't lan that much, as i scratch my original case and plan on getting a newer case. For lan, i plan on getting a gaming laptop. Please explain why you would choose one over the other, vice versa.

Full tower, because you have more room to work with.

Full towers have more room inside and therefore more room to put your cables... increasing airflow. Unfortunatly this can lower the airflow because the air has to travel a longer distance through the case, but thats better than blocking it with cables.

Most larger cases have room for more fans, etc. This is a big plus...
You're the guy from that hamburger train, right?

I like normal towers better, you can get them with 4x 5 1/2" and 7x 3 1/2" bays, and I don't really need more than that
they aren't too small to fit in a lot of hardware but not too big to fit on your desk
