That is a really awesome case :) I'm already sold. But still got two questions that might add to the awesomeness:

How big was the top fans? Two 140mm?
Would there be room for a dual 140 rad in the top then? :P

This should answer your question mate:

So um yeah whense this going to be available? I mean specialtech have it listed but with no stock and i kinda want the Arc Midi ASAP (current case is way too big for lan parties, with the irony being it can't fit any of the decent tower coolers for lack of space D: ) while i have money available :)

Perhaps they will be unscrewable somehow? I certainly hope so, because I want to put a radiator on the front panel, as I feel this is a much more efficient place to put it.

Regarding the side window, I agree with what others have said – keep it small and elegant; just enough to view the motherboard. It would also look a lot nicer if it attached from the inside without those ugly screws poking through the panel. Rounded corners would be nice too...

Anyway, will this case be available in Australia when it is released? It looks perfect.

I'd like like to mention that I certainly would be willing to pay the extra for proper Alu panels here. The internal features of the case are perfect, and in photos it's the sexiest looking case on the market right now to my tastes. However... I'm likely to end up buying a £100-£150 lian li instead because I don't like the cheap feel of plastic panels and can never tell how good they'll look in person from a photo.
