I would go with a dynamite good quality high resolution monitor and then have somebody build you a PC with all the bells and whistles that you have on it and, as was suggested, stash it in a drawer or under your desk but where you can easily get to the CD/DVD drive. We've had good luck with Equus hardware for the basic box and innards, but we have our computers custom built. Saves money and we're sure to get what we want and the shop that sells us the computer will usually stand by their stuff they load into it.

@dlowan,
Well your options are:

1) Get a nice screen, and hide the computer (a "low profile", i.e. small, case can help with this.

2) Get an all-in-one, just about any will look pretty good. The downside is cost and that it's not easy to upgrade. But that's always a tradeoff for design in computers, the most common way to upgrade a mac, for example, is to buy a new one.

3) Get a case with the design you like. You say you like "macs" but aren't specific about which ones. But you can try to find a case that looks like what you want. You can get the brushed steel look, you can get a mac mini imitation case, you can even get a case that looks like a home theater component. You'll have to look long and hard for them, you can start at sites like newegg.com and tigerdirect.com

4) Just get a small computer that looks ok, the HP slimline (might have it wrong but it's their small computers) is a bit bigger than a shoebox and looks decent.

5) Go nuts and build something beautiful. It's pretty easy to build the computer into a desk, or into an aquarium, or into anything you want. Here's an example you might like: http://www.bit-tech.net/modding/2006/04/06/japanese_case_mod_sangaku/1

Out of all those options, I recommend number 1. A beautiful screen is 90% of the good looks with all these setups.

@Robert Gentel,
I like the iPod in Macs.

Re 5.......I saw that Japanese case box design...I also saw one made inside a piano, and some aquariummy ones. They're cute, but not my thing.

I think an all in one would be my choice......but cost is likely to decree your option 1.

Re 3....I will go and look at the sites you mention. Sound interesting.

Thanks for your input.


Mind you, this:

@dlowan,
Just out of interest, I'd love to see what you guys consider to be beautiful in computers.
