    Extremetech has an article about a brand new computer that makes all of our rectangular or square computers err square to use a term for the 1950s. The computer is in fact in a cylindrical case. Read the article and see photos of the computer by clicking on the link below.

    It looks interesting, but it also looks hard to move and also looks like it would take up WAAAAAAAY too much room on a desktop.

    I&#39;m concerned about the lack of expansion capabilities for upgrading and also that it would roll off a desk with enough inertia involved. Does look cool though don&#39;t it?

    Thats exactly what I was thinking, dunno about every one else but I like building my own PC, then adding parts upgrading parts my self etc. Its a reason I don&#39;t like Macs as well as a few others.

    Wow, that thing&#39;s pretty fast&#33; *starts sobbing loudly* I want a PCIe port&#33; At least an AGP&#33;&#33; I only got a PCI graphics card.
    The only thing that is stopping you from being what you can be is what you think other people think about you.

    In the words of Robin. . .

    "Holy smokes Batman&#33;"

    I like the sound of that PC. And this. . .

    The Piston is built around a pico BTX motherboard, featuring Intel&#39;s 915G chipset. It supports Intel P4 Prescott processors up to 3.8 GHz, and either an embedded graphics solution, or a PCIe x16 graphics card.
    Wow. ^_^

    The downside is, however, that it&#39;s pretty damned ugly. o.o

    I think it has its own charm about it. It may not be pretty but it does look high tech and cool. That&#39;s a trade-off and it works. Main cause for concern in my mind is difficulty in upgrading and expanding its components. I&#39;m not sure how that&#39;d work or if it is even possible.

    Hmm its meant to be a barebone system, I guess if size and style are your aims then this is it. It looks easy to carry around too.
