so you traveled to the future to purchase it in may of this year??
i didnt know computers were entered into beauty contests...what do you guys REALLY do with yours?
jol102001, no, i dont time travel, but thanks for pointing this out to me, since ive had this for sale for the past several weeks, the add was originally written when it was last year. do you think you could find it in your perfectionist of a heart to forgive me? did i ruin another love making session for you and your fantasy computer?
intellaworks, you might want to take a look at that pathetic website if you want to talk ugly! you couldnt do that bad with templet from aol.... you would think that an unemployed person that has nothing to do but criticize other systems could find time to lay out a better website...i guess not...heres an idea, why dont you post a picture of your computer and let the board decide which is uglier?
are you just ****ed because your broke and couldnt afford this system?
now, egeekial, chime in with the laughter...
For those of us who are gamers, computers are like hot rods. LAN parties are our equivilant of cruise-ins. Looks are a huge part of that.Originally Posted by robc
Look around at modern cases at your local computer shop and you'll see colors, chromed parts, lighting systems, windows to the computer innards...
And I gotta agree. That thing looks like a wastepaper bin or a reject droid design from Star Wars. It may be fully funtional, sure... But it looks ugly.
darque, i didnt know this was a gamer website, this is news to me.
or that the "gamers" on the site had to run and read classifieds just to bash what other systems that are for sale look like.
isnt it fair that if a person is listing something for sale, appropriate responses would be to ask questions about what its all about if they are interested in it? there has to be serious mental issues with someone who takes the time to criticize the appearance of a computer that accomplishes the objectives this machine does. its got very respectable specifications, was assembled professionally and is at a great price. so what motivates a person to criticize its appearance?
if you guys dont like what it looks like, then dont buy it, who asked your opinion anyway?
To tell you the truth, this is probably a pretty good case for a carPC. what color are the standard interiors lately. Grey and Black and Tan and brown. Anyway, Grey and black seem to the thing with this case. So let's let the "computer hot rodders" drop hundred's for a chrome case with gold emplated buttons with a hole in the side for virtual blow jobs and let's get back to what's more important. SPECS that is trully what drives the computer and most carputers are pretty much tucked out of site anyway. At least if you have a descent install.
I will back you on this system, it is definitely worth looking at for a serious buyer.
Thank you I will be signing autographs later.
You can still have something if you have nothing
thanks hummdinger, for a second there i was beginning to wonder if i were on another planet....
I never said it was a gamer's site. I also never said that gamers' aesthetic opinions count, either.Originally Posted by robc
I'm not bashing the case itself. I don't like the look of it. It's probably a fine case as far as functionailty goes for that size.
However, in this day an age a functional case doesn't impress me. I can bend some metal and drill some holes and make a functional case. The only thing left is to make cases with aesthetic appeal.
Keep in mind that ANY case can be made to look better with paint, windows, lighting, decals, etc.
You posted the ad, buddy. That makes it fair game for the opinions of anyone who wants to post them. Deal with it.if you guys dont like what it looks like, then dont buy it, who asked your opinion anyway?
