ugliest computer components


this thread should be a good laugh. what's the ugliest computer component you've ever seen? for me it would be the verticalmouse. when my gf saw it she said "it looks like they modded it from someone's nose". i'm still laughing. here's a link:

Hahaha, I would have to agree with mista. The vento looks like a big green nose.

That flower-print case is just...ugh. Take a look at the other choices, some of those are even worse.

Although maybe I could finally get my grandmother to start using a computer; she likes that flowery frilly stuff...mmm nah, forget it. Just having that thing in my build room would be a nightmarish experience.

skeen: nice description of the color scheme, but i think a lot of people would actually like the case. actually, here's the reaction i got: "HELLO KITTY!!! but...the case looks ugly...bad manufacturers, making hello kitty look bad"
