[Update] Lian Li PC-O11 series now a Mid Tower

Looks like with the release of the O11-XL series, they've finally classified the regular series as Mid tower (which is good, nothing Full tower about a 54L case)

(I'd normally provide retail and manufacturer links, but all the current links now display the case as a "Mid Tower" and the Lian Li Site now just lists the case as a "Tower Design")

This case is marked as full tower due to the number of expansion slots. Midtowers rarely, if ever, have more than 7.

There's about three pages worth of Mid towers with 8 Expansion slots. Most are old, but recent entries include the Corsair Air 540, 680X, Thermaltake Core P3, View 37, A500, Rosewill Cullinan, and In Win 805. While definitely uncommon, I'd be hard pressed personally to call them rare.

If you and the team still disagree, I wont push any further.
