4 types of Computer Cases:

hp Tower Case (Full, Midi and Mini)

These cases usually sport up to multiple drive bays, and as a result, are the most expensive computer cases in the market. There is actually a middle-ground tower, called the midi, which can host 4-5 drive bays, but some manufacturers don’t usually separate the two types. Tower cases are differentiated by the number of drive bays that they support. Mini towers have three drive bays, though the number may be different, depending on the company or store that you buy your case from.
