    worth checking out, this guy builds a computer using legos, no screws, glue or anything but legos to hold this machine together.

    *quite a few images on this link- step by step build of the lego cpu*

    You do realise just quite how many years old this is? And, before you post it, yes, I do know of the cardboard cube and the K'Nexintosh

    some how I was expecting more. I mean it's kinda snappy but I've seen far more interesting case mods in my day (hello mini keg!)

    Iam not very impressed either. The idea is interesting but the ending result is kind of dissapointing, that is, the case/computer is pretty ugly. Also, the builder clearly stated that he used a lot of superglue and non-lego peices had to be used. Lego peices also were modified (cut to fit with dremel), with all these exceptions, I don't find it special at all. But credit must be given for his creativity.

    PS He must have a lot of free time! :p

    Yea, this thing is ugly.

    It's the first time that I have seen those particular pictures. Really like the name, share's it with Churchill. Interesting, but looks cheap. Would rather have my Mac.

    I'm rather fond of this little window:

    But yes, it would be so much better if all the colours had matched, etc.

    Even if this was posted before i never saw it and would not of even known that it existed, so therefore i would never have seen it had it not been "re-" posted. Thanks!

    Reminds me of some of my old space ships and stations I used to make out of all of my lego's years ago. I would use every piece in everyway shape and form.

    I wish I was 10 again :(

    if i had enough lego i would have made my current pc case out of it, but alas i dont have enough to technic to make the frame for basic mounting, let alone enough to make it all closed off

    Last time my mum came to visit she brought all my Lego, and me and my mate from college spent a very happy afternoon, all in the name of 'design'. :D

    Find your Lego, people!

    That is really, really cool. I love the CD-tray and all the other bits that can open up.

    Right . . . When I've got some free time.

    Fortunately, mines actually going to look nice to the eye.

    Cool idea though, some great concepts like the windows/doors/cd drive.

    Wasn't there a photo of a Mac Classic in a case made from LEGOs kicking round the web a few years back?
