Looks like a NEW era in computing is coming soon.
Some extremely powerful computers.

Any interest ?

Ugh. I wish something new and very powerful would come soon. I think the last time I felt even remotely excited was when the Core Duo was introduced...and even that was kind of meh. Haven't been really excited since the 90s to be honest. It's not just because I'm older...it's because everything sucks!

BTW, that computer case looks like a cross between a dehumidifier and a cheese grater.

I like these new apple pro cases but they are NOT stackable ?
What where they thinking ?
I know, you will have to buy a $1000 stacking shelf to place between Mac pros in order to stack them.

Well, They are building better cases with more air flow for a reason.
Faster and Hotter processors !

Dual Threadrippers and Quad Xeons.
4x Graphics cards.

4K and 8k video.

I like the industrial design look. Metalic white and gray are cool colors, and the power mac cases were always the most interesting to come out of apple.

Looks expensive though.

I agree, a stack able design would be better. Maybe even a 2U rack mount form factor with the same aesthetics would be interesting. But not likely at a price I am willing to play for it.

I might have seen a few PC cases that looked like the one that site shows. And I must say, they do look sweet! But they're probably not my style, because I like the style of desktops that they have currently.

However, not everyone can see what the future will actually look like, so the future of computers and computer styles is still a mystery for now, I think...

This isn't just a rip-off - it's an exact copy. Don't tell Apple.

I like it. I'm not a huge fan of the accessibility bars sticking out of the top, nor the USB C ports on the top lid. I tend to use flat surfaces to hold other things, and they've gone and made it rather inhospitable to drive enclosures or stacks of spare parts.

But... serviceability is a huge plus for me, and it's always nice to see some attention paid to airflow patterns. The "stuff it full of fans and let God sort 'em out" approach has never seemed like a good solution to me. The layout is smart, it's easy to get in there and work on things... nice.

It's a Kickstarter project, though... flashy website, questionable marketing copy, an obvious clone of Apple's design, the "Dice Y" front panel looks sure to remove skin should you bump a knee into it...

Oh dear... they've cloned the trashcan as well. Wait.. does that thing bury the motherboard inside the case and use patch cables to carry I/O to a custom back panel? Oh, my.

I predict the next big trend in computers will be square and beige...the wave of the future.

Now wouldn't that make a change.............but but it is racist though. Folk prefer computers of colour.

There's a glitch in the matrix.

No way. At some point in the not too distant future once all computers have race mixed, they will all be beige. Beige is the wave of the future, and the least rayciss colour possible. If you disagree, then you're basically a computer nazi.

We already have very powerful computers.

Yup. They use 486 CPUs.
