Humor Recompute has just launched a "green" pc whose chassis is made up entirely of cardboard. No joke. It can be ordered in different configurations, from an Athlon X2 Linux, to an Athlon II Quad Core Windows 7 model. Please note this is not for sensitive viewers.

What a good idea!

There is no Real reason why a computer case should be plastic/metal. We could easily use treated cardboard (thereby being flame and water resistant)

However, I have NO idea why their implementation is so costly... I can only assume there is no production and is manually done

Whilst I agree on the plastic, metal is superior because it dissipates heat really well, conversely cardboard insulates.
