Camaro PC – Click above for image gallery

Although it might not qualify as "revolutionary," we can certainly describe it as "eye candy meets robust technology." That's what you get here in the guise of a 20-inch-long Camaro model turned into a personal computer. A hood ornament serves as the power switch, working headlights and taillights indicate you're up and running, and DVDs slot into the front bumper.

A full array of ports is out back, and along with your dual-core Atom chip you can rev up to 8 GB of RAM, a 500 GB hard drive and Windows 7 Home Premium. There are eight color choices, but your $1,239.99 does not include a keyboard, monitor or mouse, so just as with the real Camaro you might want to make sure you have some dosh left over for accessories. A full array of photos is in the gallery below. Hat tip to Scot S.

      monitor port, AKA VGA port
      • 4 Years Ago
      Gee Look a computer for morons.

        You don't need to open a PC to only install an OS. I remember that to go from Vista from 7 all I needed was to put the DVD on.

        Expansion capability in a desktop is overrated, and the concept of a "super" do-it-all PC is similarly outdated.

        Storage, etc. should be on a centralized server, even at home, making laptops and desktops "disposable" access devices.
        • 4 Years Ago
        This thing has ZERO expansion capability. Next OS upgrade, this thing becomes a doorstop.

      $1240 for an outdated Atom system worth $500 - no thank you. That company should have waited for AMD's Fusion Zacate APU for some real performance or sell it in a Yugo car case.

      Looks exactly like my car. Given what a pain in the ass it is to upgrade the radio firmware, I'll take a pass on a whole computer. Besides, if the USB port is in the same place, my hands aren't small enough to get in there.

      the specs arent the point. if they wanted to make a good computer im sure they would have. is it worth 1300 bucks? i doubt it, unless your a chevy dealer or something like that. its still cool though. if your a model car guy, and you have alot on your desk, but theres that big clunky old piece of garbage with windows 98 on it, and you already have a laptop thats newer, why buy a new desktop with the same specs, why not buy this. its an excelent niche product, but not much more.

      fun & games until a small child mistakes this for a toy car he can push down the stairs...

      Ya, at 1300 bucks, you could buy 2-3 of these computers with monitors and keyboards.
      It's cool and all, and worth a few extra bucks over what a standard tower would cost you, but not and extra $800

      VGA port? Talk about antique.
        • 4 Years Ago
        VGA: For long distance runs to your HDTV, up to 75 ft with no signal degradation. HDMI, not so much after 6' or so.
        • 4 Years Ago
        @narf point being? The VGA port is like including a free buggy whip with a real Camaro. It's an old standard that along with the floppy and the buggy whip, needs to be abandoned and forgotten. It was time to move on many years ago.
        • 4 Years Ago
        @ wvmikep...

        Um, no. A VGA port is like including a gasoline engine in the Chevy Volt... because there isn't a place to plug it in everywhere yet. Millions of people have monitors that don't connect via HDMI or DVI. My guess is that most Camaro PC owners will fall into that category.
        • 4 Years Ago
        There's a HDMI port just to the left of it. Talk about current.
      • 4 Years Ago
      The port arrangements would look a lot more interesting if they were placed in a computer designed to replicate the human form.
      • 4 Years Ago
      I dig It !
        • 4 Years Ago
        We are essentially talking about a PC as powerful as one of those craptop Netbooks without the screen, mouse or the Keyboard included(which a $300 Netbook does have) for over $1200. The story seems a bit suspicious though since that "Monitor" port is a VGA port which is many years obsolete. The sum product is criminal. The computer "engine" they have put inside this Camaro is like putting a lawnmower engine in the real thing.

        I like it too, but can it run Crisys?
        • 4 Years Ago
        It can run it about as well as you can spell it....
        • 4 Years Ago
        Tranny must be 6sp manual over..clock.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Lame!
        • 4 Years Ago
        If you go to www.newegg.com you can get it for $500. Still pricey but it's a pretty bad ass computer.
      • 4 Years Ago
      nice stocking stuffer
      • 4 Years Ago
      Atom processor! Uh no thanks.
