Picture for prosperity:
That case is the coolest desktop-style case I have ever seen.

Packard bell aren't that bad. the early us models were bad but i have a 2005 packard bell laptop (During the time they were owned by nec) and its built like a tank.

my first pc was a hp vectra, pentium 1, 32mb ram, 1.5gb hdd, s3 virge. it had no propper sound whatsoever. most games refused to run on it because of its lack of sound card. it looked like this, exept it had a cd drive.

My first computer was a Tandy from Radio Shack. It had an 8086 processor, 768k RAM, 20mb hard drive, and DOS 3.3 I think. All I wanted was a word processing machine.
