World's most outrageous PC cases

We have PCs packed into pianos, barbecue grills, gas pumps, and whisky bottles--and that doesn't even scratch the surface. Check out these 20 wild, working pieces of PC art.

Frank Macon's John Deere Gas Pump



The John Deere Gas Pump is a pure Americana special from Missouri-based modder Frank Macon. His mod was a weekly winner during ExtremeTech's 2007 Case Mod Contest.

Macon's gas-pump PC sports a 1.83GHz AMD Athlon processor and 512MB of RAM. The pump has green LED fans to match the John Deere color scheme, and--to give the mod a dose of realism--Macon turned the gas pump's handle into the on/off switch. Pull the handle forward to give your computer some gas; pull it back, and the computer shuts down. At ExtremeTech, you can find more John Deere PC photos, and a limitless supply of other awesome case mods.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
