Default $2,899 hand-built PC has unique chassis

You're looking at a Core i7-860-powered PC housed in a hand-built case made from "brushed, anodized aluminum and ecoresin." Each system is made to order by Darwinmachine's Matthew Kim, a self-described architect and race-car designer. Kim explains, "At the moment, I'm building the machines one by one, so I will have them available for purchase online as they are built. Each Hammerhead will be custom, "one-off" machines, so they will vary in finish and color." That probably explains the $2,899 price tag.


If you ask me, I'd say Mr. Kim needs to work out a deal with a case manufacturer and get this thing in stores ASAP. I'd love to have one of these on my desk, but with Sandy Bridge processors out and about, there's no way I'd pay nearly three grand for a Core i7-860 system. Kim does say the HMR989's chassis is "designed to last as new components can be easily upgraded over time," however. If you do get one, an upgrade to Sandy Bridge might not be out of the question.
