what is a mini-tower? Answered

what is the main difference between full,mid-tower and mini-tower cases in diagrams and how many slots do they have


They are various computer case and motherboard sizes. You have them ranked from largest to smallest. Mid-Tower is the most common. Number of slots, I'm going to assume you mean PCI/AGP (do they even make AGP any more? I think I just dated myself a little.), will vary between manufacturers and specific boards.

I would spend sometime on Newegg. You don't have to buy there but they have lots of knowledgeable reviewers and the products have complete tech specs.
