    Ok folks, here is a good one. Why are all the new computers black or dark in color?:whistling: Most computers were previously white or grey in color. Is this the new discrimination ?:rofl:

    Does anyone know where I can find a white or light colored computer? My gf does not want a black computer because it does not go with her decor. :faint:

    Black is sexy. White is gay.

    I'm surprised no one's yet suggested the Apple Store...

    Another option might be the spray paint aisle at Wal-Mart for a 'color conversion kit in a can'. And you could get nachos while you're there.

    Build your own rig? You can choose any kind of color then. :)

    white PCs usually mean older, so black's the new white... plus there's a run on the marketability of "slim" designs and black is slimming.

    Black looks much better than "beige", "ivory", "eggshell", or any other shade of off-white.

    Also, a computer does not even need to be seen anymore. It's not 20th century when a "desktop" literally sit on top of your desk. Nowadays you can put a computer somewhere in a closet and run a lond HDMI cable to your monitor. Mouse and keyboard can either be wireless, or use a USB extension cable.

    Well, I just used the straight AL PC-Q08 A for my server. I briefly thought about red but it was $20 more and didn't seem worth it for something that was going to get stuffed in the bottom of my safe. So I blew the $20 on extra RAM. :rock:
