Over the next few weeks, we'll be gradually rolling out a new revision 2.0 PCB which incorporates some of the most popular suggestions." Also: manufactured in the UK.

I think it must depend on your intentions as to whether or not a premanufactured case makes any sense.

The RPi that I'm using as a multimedia center on my television requires a powered USB hub for my wifi dongle and to attach an external hard drive. A case that only houses the board would look odd as all these other large items come cascading off of it. My Lego case was easy to customize to house everything for that.

But, the RPi I keep in my office at work would be easy to throw in a premanufactured case since I mostly use it to run remote apps and save data on the network drives.
