Pyramid-Shaped Computer Case: Pointy, Pointy

by Lambert Varias

What shape do you associate with style? Scimitar Computers claim that pyramids = hip & stylish, and so they’re claiming that their handmade pyramid-shaped computer cases are “the solution to the conundrum of how to be a computer nerd and hip and stylish at the same time.” I thought Apple’s already solving that problem. /runs

Okay I was just kidding, lower your Cheetos. Called Vertex, the laser-cut aluminum case measures 10.24″ x 16 ” x 16″. It comes equipped with a LED-lit power button, Scythe Kama-Flex sleeved fans, and hard drive suspension. Each case also comes with a Micro-ATX motherboard, Flex ATX power supply, a slim DVD bay, side-mounted USB, Firewire and audio in/out ports, and a “cross-flow cooling system”, comprised of a fan at the back and bottom of the pyramid.

The Vertex comes in three colors, blue, red and black. In my opinion, its the colors that make it … not stylish. They’re very flat and basic and end up making the case look like a work in progress.

Maybe it would look cooler if they painted it to look like a real pyramid. Or maybe if it looked like a Sphinx. Yeah, I’d want a Sphinx case. Or a Buddha case.

But if the Vertex suits your tastes, you can order one for $400 USD (plus $20 shipping, US only) at Scimitar Computers’ Etsy page. I really think you should make it look like a real pyramid though. Like with coffins and mummies inside.

    I hear ya about the design and colors. Some of that is due to the fact that I’m a mediocre photographer at best, it looks much better in person. Personally, I would like to see one with a pyramid skin like Giza or a Stargate theme with the Transporter gate ring on the front face. Sphinx USB hard drive accessories would be a hilarious add-on as well. We’ll see what the future brings :)

    later,
