Is there anything a sports fan will not buy?
Words almost fail me... for once.
That is truly horrible and hilarious at the same time.
Does anybody here know anybody who would want one of these?
next time please post a bit more of a warning! i just ate!
on a slightly more serious side - its UGLY!
Holy God. Why not just stick a helmet on top of your current tower? It might look better...
I hereby award this:
He says he has the ability to reach 8 million NFL fans. He said 250 thousand of the 'hardcore' ones would like to buy one. I doubt 500 will.
Unless you are a freakin' moron.
There are enough red necks in the market for that, I am sure.
Hahahaha what an ugly, hilarious thing.
I could see the guy making it ugly on purpose, selling it, then literally laughing all the way to the bank. Laughing for a different reason than they usually do, anyway.
C'mon, they expect to actually sell more than two of these things by using the Oakland Raiders helmet as the demo? At least pick a decent team!
I'm sure that it's, beauty in the eye of the beholder on this one. Knowing today's marketing, they have already market tested this PC. Note the price of $499, just the market that Apple may want to attract.
For some reason when I think of hardcore NFL fans I think of pot-bellied mid aged men. And they probably don't know the difference from a computer or television. So I doubt they will have intrest in getting a computer that looks like a helmet. Other than that it's hidious.
I'm a hardcore NFL fan, and I'm neither middle-aged nor pot-bellied. But I still wouldn't get a computer like that, because it's a PC.
you have to be really into that football stuff i guess... though it does look a little cheasy at first
WOW, Hold on.....I have seen some ugly computers, (dells) but this computer just won the gold metal, honesly who would actually purchase this??? I mean PC's already suck!, but this just gave me the best reson i seen to swich to a mac
I agree, maybe the Packers or the Colts at least
I too am a hardcore NFL fan (just home at 2am after watching playoffs) and I'm not pot-bellied, middleaged or male. But I can't see myself buying one of those PCs, even if they were Macs.
Having said that, I'm always astonished at what NFL merchandise does sell and at what prices. Caps/shirts and stuff under $50 fine, even the tailgating BBQ helmet is understandable. But some of the other stuff - skis in team colours, a 8 foot popcorn popper trolley ($1500!) Scary!
No, no, no, I said decent teams.
P.S. We'd better stop here, this could get ugly. Just notice the location under my username.
I'm guessing they have to start giving these away instead of sports phones, because nobody's going to buy them. People can be dumb, but not this dumb.
ROFL. I can see the guys. Some ultra-hardcore NFL fan/redneck/engineer deciding that his computer was crap and that covering it up with a helmet would make it look somewhat decent... and NFL picking up on the cue and marketing it.
1) I am reminded of the Sports Illustrated Football phone you received with subscription - just as ugly and borderline-functional.
2) That perhaps the designer(s) of this "creation" either (a) should've worn a helmet earlier to prevent their obvious head-injuries, or (b) are actually a team of monkeys with crayons.
Sorry if I caused a stir, but I was just making a steriotype.
Jesus Christ. It looks like Robo-Quarterback.
Did you check out the links at the bottom -- the Hot Wheels PC, the Barbie PC, and the (forgive the redundancy) Mickey Mouse PC?
well, someone has to make this joke....
at least now, when windows crashes, it won't get hurt.
(because, you know, it has a cute little helmet)
Just to tell you, if you read the article. It does NOT come with a helmet. You put on any standard size one. Which actually makes the deal that much worse. None the less, this computer is horrible, aesthetically and performance....
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
If you have to have a PC and want something that hides the fact, then this is you baby IMO.
