‘ePod’ iPod-lookalike Windows PC case debuts

“For years, Windows PC owners have been able to connect to an iPod. Now they can have a computer that looks like the iconic digital music player. Logisys Computer this week added the ePod Soho case to its lineup of unusual PC shells. The white PC case has several ‘buttons’ resembling those found on the scroll wheel of an Apple Computer iPod, as well as a blue LED light that gives the case a constant backlit glow,” Ina Fried reports for CNET News.

“The ePod is a shell into which individuals or custom PC makers would need to add a processor, motherboard, hard drive and other components,” Fried reports. “The ePod is currently shown on Logisys’s Web site, but it is not yet available through any retailers. A Logisys representative said the company has not had any communications with Apple.”

  1. That is the most disgusting thing I’ve ever seen in my life.
    If I want a computer that looks like an iPod (which I NEVER do), I’ll wait until Apple makes one.
    Until that, then this is crap.
    That’s uglier than a Dell box..

  2. First of all, it doesn’t even look remotely like an iPod. It’s got a large circular shape on the front, that’s where the similarites end other than the color.

    And while we are on the subject of the large circular area, its a good time to point out why Apple excels in design and other companies don’t. Apple doesn’t add arbitrary elements to their designs, which is exactly what this element is.

    Frankly, if we did go as far as to say that it was similar to the iPod then it follows suit with everything else the PC industry does. Cheap crappy looking knock-off.
