This one goes out to all those who happen to be fans of the new Chevy Camaro and who happen to have a knack for collectibles: Chevy Accessories is now officially offering a modern functioning computer that’s a replica of the fifth-generation bow tie pony car.
The 20-inch long Camaro PC has a hood ornament that serves as a power switch, a tray-less slot-loading DVD drive (like those found on most Apple Macs and Sony Vaio notebooks) located in the front bumper, as well as your standard array of connection ports in the rear in place of the rear diffuser. The legendary Chevy bow tie serves as the power switch and the lights – both in the front and the back – indicate that the machine is up and running.
On the technical side, you get a choice of 4-8 GB of RAM, a 250-500 GB hard drive, NVIDIA Cude graphics, and an array of connectivity options, including Wi-FI, HDMI out, Gigabit Ethernet, VGA out, 4 USB ports (2 in front, 2 in back), as well as speaker, headphone, and mic ports. Windows 7 Home Premium is the only operating system available and the entire rig can be painted in lead-free aqua blue, black, cyber gray, inferno orange, rally yellow, silver ice, summit white, victory red colors to match those of the road-going Camaro.
The unit has a starting price of $1239.99 but make sure you have enough greenbacks left over for accessories, since the entire setup is BYOKMM (Bring Your Own Keyboard Mouse and Monitor).
Interestingly, the rally yellow color (my favorite) is only available with 4GB of RAM and the smaller 250 GB hard disk.
