5 Stylish Personal Computers

Computers as Art

— March 13, 2008 — Tech
This trend has got to be the antithesis of a trend I wrote about environmentally-friendly PC's. Not that this bunch is not ecologically-friendly mind you; I am not even looking into that.
The point is that the focus on these PC's is style, looks, bling and impossibly pimped out designs. There is nothing organic-looking. No biodegradable material or bamboo covers or solar powered laptop. The five PC's functionality and specifications are abbreviated below. From the flaming green specimen at the top then clockwise:

This flaming green Falcon Northwest's top-of-the-line Mach V has a fast, 8-core Intel Skulltrail 5400, a custom Icon Exotix case with a green flame paint job and lighting. It also comes with a Blu-ray/HD-DVD player to 2TB of RAID storage and 2x nVidia GeForce 8800 Ultra graphics. The tag price on this is $13,849.

The 24K gold-plated VoodooPC Omen comes with an Intel Core 2 Extreme QX6850 quad-core processor and it sells for a mere $21,150. If that is too steep, you can go for the less expensive $5,406 model.

The Alienware's Area-51 ALX CF in the Space Black P2 has an Intel Core 2 Extreme quad-core processor and ATI Radeon HD Crossfire graphics. The price on this Alienware specimen starts at $5149.

The deep blue neon iBuyPower's Thermal comes with a cool gaming case: The Gamer Paladin 880mxL. It is also outfitted with Intel Core 2 Duo E6550 processor with nVidia GeForce 8800GTS graphics. The price on this baby starts at $1324.

The Smooth Creations Apollo is a customized PC which sports an amazing paint job reminiscent of the sports car world. You can purchase this PC fully configured for $2,620 or the case for only $450.00.
