Default Lian Li PC-888

$640USD

Officially the ugliest case they ever made.



More information here for those with a particular taste for this sort of thing:

Okay....
For 620USD that thing better MAKE and POUR my coffee as well.

I guess we have a new trend starting...the Bulldozer, the Skeleton....now this.

And Lian Li has made some Sexy Cases in the past...but...damn..

I agree, sure does look like a coffee maker! Neat design but by the looks of it...just impractical and unneccessary. I guess the Bulldozer and Skeleton must be selling well (not) for them to come out with something like this...

CMetaphor: haha, I take it that's the Burninator version.

Actually, that reminds me of the hotel in Dubai that's shaped like a sail. Kinda

If only it were a sail..... then it might "fly away" and not bother us with its hideousness.

I agree, that is a horrible looking case. I wonder if it comes with a free hit of acid, the same kind the designers used while coming up with it.
