Default Case for Pet Owners

Anyone seen/know of a case that would be ideal for pet owners? Parents have pets and are going to need a new build sometime in the near future, thing is their current case is always full of dust/cat hair.

Looking for a case that has lots of removable vents to help keep things clean...?

Almost every modern case has fan filters on all or almost all intakes, just make sure you have positive airflow

You wont really find anything else or for that matter need anything if you have positive pressure

My parents went with my imac to keep a tower off the ground but a nice m-itx on the desk should really help with the issues. these days you can build super cheap m-itx systems my brother just built a cheap heap FM2 mitx system.

If you have positive pressure in your case (more airflow in than out) and filters on the intakes you should have no problems.

Finer dust particles will still get through requiring occasional cleaning but you shouldn't see large build ups and no hair.

Apart from that pick any of the vast number of cases with good filters on or add after-market filters yourself.
(can always make filters by cutting up stockings/nylons whatever you guys call them and taping them over the vents before (re)attaching the fans.
