Info: Ikea! I wanted a pc for the kitchen, something flashy and moveable, and this is what it turned out to be. Ikea cabinet, Athlon XP 2400+, MSI GeForce4 Ti 4200, Gigabyte AXP Mobo (KT400), Stock TFT arm, Logitech X530 5.1 speakers, Hercules SmartTV Stereo, Soundblaster Live USB, 1 Gig RAM, 2 HD's (200Gb all together). Some cooler master led fans, some aluminium, cable ties, duct tape, stainless steel mesh and a few days of work.
It sounds good when it's playing mp3's though.

@ Wayway :
Alas, a touch screen wasn't an option (cost) but it would have added loads of comfort in operating the whole thing.

It has wireless, a USB WiFi-G stick, the wood doesn't really impede good reception and there's no visible antenna (as I mentioned before, it had to be visually spic & span) - and therefore, yup, the web & home network are accessible. The keyboard is stored on the right side, the mouse goes in the drawer, on the pics you can spot it on the back side. Ofcourse it's a wireless set, otherwise the concept would have been gone - imagine a wired keyboard and mouse on this ;)
And yes again on the Mac generation; but with this comment: Macs are known for good design, and that means the perfect combination of form and function - in my view that's independent of the os you're using. In the beginning I used Mandrake Linux on this pc, but due to lack of decent support for all the peripherals I had to revert to Windows again. Nevertheless, I'm completely into the look & feel of Mac OS and the GUI is Mac-ish (Style XP and a Mac OS Panther theme)

@ all of the commenters: thanks for the nice comments - hints are welcome

OMFG, that's so sweet, so simple. i like the retro look of your home man, same like mine. Where's the mouse and keyboard ?
