That actually looks pretty classy (OK not so much when you put it next to the monitor and keyboard) pretty funny April Fools joke though.

Ironically I can see this April Fools joke being appealing to some people, especially those who still use CRTs and IBM Model M mechanical keyboards.

Was there a practical reason computers all used to be beige?

I haven't confirmed if it's true but I've heard that it was because most things in early offices were beige so it was to match the decor, and beige allegedly doesn't change color over time as bad as say, white (with the plastics they were using back then).

Damn.. I was hoping this wasn't a joke. It actually looks nice.

Yep, white plastic tends to turn yellow as it oxidizes (my SNES is testament to that). They used to add blue to it to offset the yellow but eventually it all just turns beige.

Nice April Fool's.

Could go well with a pair of 598s for the older gamer.

I was gonna mention that, that's what it reminded me off. Not sure why companies don't try and make premium cases, cream finish with wood paneling on the front, something stupid like that.

There are quite a few cool looking casemods involving wood. One day i'd like to DIY myself a wooden case.

LOL That picture brings me back to when white cases were avant-garde.

Lol, that's pretty hilarious. :P

Either way, Coolermaster make better cases.

Coolermaster don't make anything that can compare to the 900D (EDIT: maybe cosmos...) I don't think they look as nice either.

I like the vintage look. Too bad it isn't real. :(

Everything in the 80's/early 90's was brown or beige. Then things turned grey and white... then eventually we got black glossy products :P or aluminum (Apple).
