Pyramid-Shaped Computer Case: Pointy, Pointy
May 12th, 2009
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.
