Fast and sexy. Those two adjectives describe how we like our PCs, which might explain why this hobby is often compared to cars. After all, a finely tuned rig that runs laps around the competition could just as easily describe our overclocked six-core machine with multiple GPUs as it could our hotrod sitting out in the garage. Chevy seems to understand this and is offering up a mildly customizable PC in Camaro trim.

"Built inside a detailed replica of the new Camaro, this PC brings a new dimension to computing with a dramatic shell design, combining entertainment, work, and play into a lifestyle-enhancing, car enthusiast's dream," Chevy explains.


Sounds like a winning combination to us, though tempered by pedestrian parts. Fitting all the pieces into a Camaro themed case meant going with an ITX form factor, and sadly, Chevy chose to pop an Intel Atom N330 dual-core processor under the hood instead of something with a bit more pep. Other features include 4GB or 8GB of DDR2-800 RAM, up to a 1TB hard drive, Nvidia Ion graphics, DVD burner, 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, two USB 2.0 ports, HDMI, eSATA, 6-channel audio, and a few other odds and ends.


In other words, you're not going to win many races, but you'll be computing in style like no other Atom-based rig out there. LED headlights illuminate when you punch the power button and the taillights flash when the hard drive spins. And for you safety-first folks, Chevy says all parts and materials use 100 percent lead free paint.

Sticker price starts at $1,240 with a variety of color options to choose from, including "Aqua Blue, "Black," "Cyber Gray," "Inferno Orange," "Rally Yellow," "Silver Ice," "Summit White," and "Victory Red."

Lead-free paint? Is that a feature now that we're importing everything from China? I was under the impression that we solved this problem in 1977.

What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?

Dogs are great judges of character, and if your dog doesn't like somebody being around, you shouldn't trust them.
