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.

How about wood or bamboo?

Personally, I would like to see more electronic devices with bamboo or wooden cases. It is much more practical than cardboard (especially for portables devices, a cardboard desktop is probably okay though), and it looks really nice too.

See http://gigaom2.files.wordpress.com/2008/04/dell1.jpg for example. I think that looks nicer than a Mac!

Okay, but does it look nicer than this other Apple product?
