I already dont like PC’s, but Cardboard???

Recompute is just so far fetched: an entire desktop PC… built with cardboard! Sure, the internals are standard off-the-shelf PC components, but from the outside Recompute looks like nothing we’ve ever seen, and that’s really saying something for a desktop industry that’s tried just about every look twice.
Engaget recently tested this cardboard computer, finding that it works as a computer but regular stuff like putting the power supply in makes the cardboard start to come apart, so structurally this thing is ultra fragile

There’s certainly a bit of a premium cost here for what you’re getting: you can get a Linux-based 2.2GHz Athlon X2 for $500 (about double what you might pay for a regular version of these specs), or a 2.8GHz Athlon II Quad Core-based Windows 7 system for $1,000 (again, about double), or you can go for the $200 DIY kit with a 400W power supply. Still, you can’t argue with the aesthetic statement and the “greener than thou” cachet. I bet Apple would never do this!!!
