PCs Looking Like The iMacs?

Mac users will of course point out that this appears to be copying the success seen with the Apple iMac. Perhaps, I am not going to argue this as I don’t care. It will be interesting to see how PC users perceive this form factor over that of the typical PC. This new look is certainly sleek and would present something worthwhile to the user not looking to upgrade anything, but the do-it-yourself crowd might not like that too much?

It’s going to be your call today, people. Hit the comments, let me know if you think this type of PC has any chance at all of truly taking off the way the good old fashion tower has. If nothing else, at least we know it would clear off a lot of extra space and maybe, just maybe, consume less power as well.

    That style is good for the fussy wife, with the husband who wishes to please more than he cares for performance, convenience, or expandability.

    I have a hard time building a computer for myself in anything less than a full tower. One thing I’d like to see is a form factor that was the same height and depth as many mid-towers, but about 1.5 times as wide, with a right side removable panel (from the front), that allows flat mounting of at least 4 hard drives on the panel, using shock mounts. With that, an air flow channel from the front of the machine, behind the motherboard tray, and right over all the hard drives would be great.

    Very nice looking, nicer looking than the new iMacs by orders of magnitude, except for the speakers. I’m sure it’ll be quite a bit cheaper than the iMac too (at comparable specs). Could be a winner.
