I don’t often have much interest in non mobile hardware but this is too beautiful not to share. It’s not often you see a case with such beautiful form and attention to detail. It might even trump Apple, especially if you could manage some peripherals to match. Like Apple it’s not just about it’s out tward looks, on the inside the Psile Silent Media Center PC is equipped with a patented construction made of aluminum that acts as an heatsink for the hard disk drive and other components. The case is made from solid 4mm aluminum. The psile case is based on a mini-itx motherboard formfactor which are available from a range of manufactures and with a variety of CPU types including the Intel Core 2 Duo. Definitely worth considering.
