Design Hara’S Green Pc Struts Its Woody Goodness

While all of you guys are ogling the latest and greatest Tablet PCs and 3-D TVs at CES, here’s a new desktop PC that’s sure to draw some stares. Design Hara’s eco-friendly “Green PC” definitely caught my eye.

The compact PC comes is a small handcrafted chassis, complete with handmade wooden side panels that come from Italian cypress wood or Canadian rose wood. While Design Hara claims that with this computer “you can simply save the earth!”, I wouldn’t go that far unless you use it to cure cancer or something. That said, it is built using at least some sustainable components and power consumption is rated at only 60 watts per hour, which isn’t bad at all. It looks awesome alongside the less-than-eco-friendly clear acrylic speakers by Ferguson Hill in the photo below, they don’t come with the computer anyway.

The case is loaded with a Zotac 9300 Mini-ITX motherboard, the base system runs on an Intel Core2Duo CPU and comes with a 1TB hard drive and 4GB of RAM. They also throw in a Blu-ray drive for good measure. Sure, the specs sound completely average by today’s standards, but design is what this baby is all about.

No word on when or where you’ll be able to get one of these, but for now, you can check out more photos and specs over at Design Hara.
