Now we will add a few words about the similar R2 Toast model.
These cases have identical chassis and differ with the front panels only. The R2 Toast has its optical drive bay in the bottom rather than top part of the panel and the drive’s tray moves out upwards into a depression. The front panel has lost its gloss, being matte now. It also has two small vent holes at the sides.
There is no lever for opening the optical drive’s tray. This is now done by the button on the left panel of the case.
And if you don’t need an optical drive at all, you can put a neat faceplate into the slit for the drive’s tray.
As the bottom part of the front panel is occupied by the optical drive, the interface connectors and Reset button have moved up to the top panel where they are hidden by a neat cover.
These are still two USB ports and two audio sockets.
The R2 Toast is identical to the above-described R3 Corona on the inside. Interestingly, the GMC website shows a somewhat different HDD cage, but in our sample the cage is the same as in the R3 Corona.
