FleX 4 2 Folding Media PC
Italian designer Pietroguerra has just introduced the premium FleX 4.2 home theater PC. Its entire focus is as a complement to a luxury stereo or TV setup, including the shape itself: a hinged design either lays flat to stack the computer with other AV equipment, or folds in half to create a smaller footprint in vertically crowded spaces. Dual Bang & Olufsen amplifiers also boost the computer's sound as high as 400W and will work even when the PC is switched off. The FleX can be built with an IR receiver to work with other B&O equipment and has the option of as many as three digital or hybrid TV tuners.
The system is available today as a custom-assembled system with price varying by needs: a base model ships for $2,849 with a 1.66GHz Core 2 Duo, 250GB hard drive, and no TV tuners. [via CrunchGear]
