    Heres how to save loads of money and/or time and effort spray painting your HPTC or looking for expensive black cases and components.

    HIDE IT !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    I simply place the PC where it can't be seen
    and use the Airkey infrared remote keyboard as the controller. only need to access the pc to put a dvd in so why have it out?
    SIMPLE BUT EFFECTIVE !!

    Better still, get some extra long IDE and power cables and mount the DVD drive, floppy drive, power and reset buttons wherever you want in a custom made wooden facia under the monitor. Then leave the rest of the crap hidden away.
    Works for me :)

    Lets face it no matter how you dress it up a pc is still a pc, why would you want to look at it when you dont have to.
    Its also a lot more female friendly , most women dont want to see lots of unsughtly equipment if they dont have to.
    I hid mine behind the tv !!!!!!!!!!!!
