Since I got a new MacBook Pro 17, I’ve always been concerned about traveling with it. My last laptop’s lid got a bit scratched up in a backpack when I hadn’t been careful about what I put inside of it.
Let’s get this out of the way – if you bought an Apple computer, part of why you bought is its appearance. There’s no denying that. I own a MacBook, and even though it’s the white plastic one I still like how it looks compared to other laptops.
Dell has gobs of notebooks on the market with all sorts of offerings that run from basic netbooks and notebooks up to high end gaming models.

Remember that guy who made that duct tape AT-AT? Well, he’s just listed another Star Wars item. This new listing is for a Millennium Falcon that’s made out of cardboard, Styrofoam, and aluminum tape. That makes it all shiny.
This computer-in-a-keyboard casemod owes at least a nod to from the Asus EeeKeyboard (or at least the Commodore 64). Bart Reardon’s MacBook Air Project is working to combine the brains of a MacBook Air with the aluminum body Apple keyboard and a Magic Trackpad.

If you ask me, Vertu missed one hell of a cross-promotion deal with the latest incarnation of their Ascent mobile phone, especially with the phone’s armored style and aluminum and titanium material. I mean look at it, wouldn’t it be awesome in Iron Man’s colors?
How slim? The Mythos XTR-50 by Definitive Technology wowed folks at CES 2010 with it’s 1.5-inch thick body. The secret? Aluminum.

…or actually, you probably shouldn’t do that. But you still will look awfully cool walking around with this big, bad-ass GoW blade that looks just like the one Kratos slashes his enemies with.

I spotted this unique PC while trolling the aisles at this year’s CES show. This cool looking PC from Korea’s Moneaul does something really unique if you’re into monitoring your energy consumption.
