Maingear Prysma Pyramid PC
The PC enthusiast crowd is arguably hunting for an iconic computer: one that so clearly escapes the mundane box shape that others simply have to notice. Its design may not have universal appeal, but the Maingear Prysma PC can certainly promise a unique design. The pyramid-shaped case includes a TV tuner and a Media Center remote, both of which will let owners use the Prysma as the hub of a particularly exotic home theater. The distinctive shape does carry a price: $1958 is the minimum barrier for entry and nets the buyer a dual-core Pentium 4, 1GB of RAM, a 250GB hard drive, and the aforementioned tuner in either a black or silver case. Brighter colors such as the red pictured are available at an extra cost.
