When we go to buy a desktop or laptop computer, we may look for a model with a design that reflects our personality . Or better yet, our personal tastes. Therefore, if our personality or hobbies are something out of the ordinary, we strongly recommend that you take a good look at what comes next .
Some are true geeks taken from the imagination of certain users. Others are a true declaration of intent on the part of some brands, although without much commercial viability. But each and every one of these models are authentic exclusive jewels that you will not find anywhere else.
Today we bring you a list of the rarest computers on the market to date.
Datamancer steampunk laptop
Designed and built by Richard “Datamancer” Nagy, the device is a steampunk masterpiece crafted entirely by hand. You only have to take a look at the image to appreciate its brand new Victorian style so desired by many collectors .
This designer's project began in November 2007, although it took almost five years to start selling the first batch of Steampunk laptops . Since then, many other creations of this designer have also become famous, among which we can find keyboards, monitors, keys and even a telegraph.
It seems that Richard has found his niche of buyers who are eagerly awaiting his next creation. Mind you, these artisan masterpieces are far from cheap with prices ranging from $ 5,500 to $ 7,500 .
Lian Li PC-777B Snail
Unfortunately, those in charge of the creative side of this computer house were not very inspired when it came to creating a design that would appeal to users. Good proof of this is this Lian brand computer case that seems to have been taken from the set of a retro-futuristic film .
This reference called Snail was launched on the market with the idea of representing the shape of a conch shell . And yes, the design is ingenious and all that, but when it came to mounting the various components inside it was really uphill.
In addition to its non-functional design, it could not be said that the box cooled the components especially well. And not that it was too cheap. Up to 300 dollars came to cost at the time, taking into account that we are only talking about a case.
This reference from the Taiwanese Acer is an ode to exaggeration that will leave you with your mouth open and not only for the hardware that is hidden inside, but also for its price. This Acer Predator 21-X is a powerful, big, heavy and expensive computer, very, very expensive .
You can tell that they wanted to throw the house out the window when conceiving this laptop. Keep an eye on its technical aspects: Intel Core i7 7820HK processor at 3.90 GHz, two NVIDIA GTX 1080 graphics cards with 8 GB of GDDR5X memory, 64 GB of DDR4 RAM and space for five storage units, either SSD or hard drives .
If you have not yet run out of breath, its design is not far behind. It has a screen curve IPS 21 inch with resolution 2560 × 1080 pixels and a refresh rate is 120 Hz and support G-Sync NVIDIA.
But the best comes now. This Acer Predator 21-X weighs 8.8 kg and the cheapest model reaches almost 10,000 euros in price. Come on, what is said given away.
This Getac mobile server is a portable device that looks more like a kind of portable safe. It is not surprising if we take into account that it is specifically designed to accompany army forces on their missions . In this way, the device responds to the intensive needs of data and cloud storage to deploy soldiers, manage incursions into enemy territory or give emergency response to troops.
The Lenovo Star Trek Enterprise
The case of this gaming computer will delight all Star Trek fans. The Chinese computer manufacturer designed a fully functional computer designed for fans of the famous science fiction series. While it may look like a model of the USS Enterprise , what it actually hides is a complete video game computer.
Presented a year ago at Lenovo's Beijing Tech World Conference in China, this PC captured the eyes of the audience . And not only because of its appearance, but because inside it houses a ninth-generation Intel processor and 32 GB of RAM. As far as storage is concerned, it incorporates a 1 TB SSD and a 2 TB HDD. Finally, it has an Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 GPU.
Without a doubt, these characteristics make it a very interesting option for the gaming market . What do you think?
ZenBook Pro 15
Asus demonstrated at Computex 2018 in Taiwan that there are no limits when it comes to inventing new features for its new computer models. This is the case of the ZenBook Pro 15, a device that at first may seem more or less conventional, but whose trackpad is a full color screen with many functions .
It may remind some of the MacBook Touch Bar, but this model comes with many more features . Applications can be run on the main screen, used as a secondary screen, to move video playback icons to full screen, or to operate Office more precisely.
The dimensions of this mouse-screen are 5.5 inches and 1080p HD resolution , and if now it can be something exotic, in the future it may be an idea that can work in the market. Of course, it has already captivated us.
So far our review of computers with rare and spectacular designs . And you? Do you know more bizarre models than these? Leave your suggestions in the comments.
