Ok, we understand that a small form-factor PC like Cybernet's ZPC GX31 would really suit some user's needs: on a cramped shop counter-top perhaps. We even kinda admire that this gizmo squeezes in a full PC (up to Core 2 Quad CPU, Intel graphics, optical drive, HDD, up to 4GB RAM) and standard I/O ports into a "zero footprint" box that's like a chunky keyboard. Hell, it even has a touchpad and memory card slots. But we wonder: surely the world has moved on from Commodore 64-like design? Yuck, yuckity yuck. If it actually floats your boat, it's fully customizable and costs from $699 to $1099. [Cybernetman via Chipchick]
I see these advertised all the time in the computer magazines... I've never been too sure on them, simply because keyboards don't last like they used to. Unless this is built the old-fashioned way, with separate switches for each key, no thanks.
That said, don't diss the c64. That thing was teh awesomeness.
