ummm no to the high paying electrical/computer engineer job. My husband has basic computer certs and when he was building his latest computer the only thing he had not received in shipping was his case and since he couldn`t wait, he "Frankenstein`d" it together without a case.... it`s really not that big of a deal. And decent paying computer jobs are not that easy to come by...

I did something like this in high school, built an entire computer that was mounted to a board that could be mounted on a wall. You save money on a case plus more air circulation "inside" your computer means it runs cooler, it`s a win-win.

Tipping keyboard on your lap and having to bring your elbow into your chest to move the mouse down would make this way less comfortable than it would seem.

600r3d, how would this get someone a highelnd job as an electrical/computer engineer, since he A - hasnt done anything but mount his gear on a wall and B he hasnt done ANYTHING BUT MOUNT HIS GEAR ON A WALL.

everything is exactly the same as it should be, minus the case.

also, lawl...IDE cables.

Why is the cooling fan so far away from where the cpu should be?

Did he detach the cpu and somehow wire it to the motherboard from a distance?

The cool thing is that he can lay down as he wanks to pr0n.

The not-so-cool thing is that he might bust nut in his motherboard.

While I`m sure the open space helps with cooling, I`m wondering what would happen if one of those pieces fell, or if they needed to be replaced. And its interesting how he`s found one more way to be even lazier. And what gets me is that lazy people will go out of their way to be lazy.

@ Peaches25:

I happen to find that insulting. It`s like you`re saying that`s the only type of woman he could attract, and that women who look like you described could only attract men like the one pictured here.

For all you know, he might have a great social life and an attractive girlfriend.

If your screen is big enough, like say 27" or 30", then that looks like the right distance, otherwise you`ll have to move your head a lot to see everything.

Thats the power supply, it converts wall outlet electricity into something the computer can use. It usually comes with a fan installed so it doesn`t catch fire.

Maybe he has some sort of illness, making getting up to play very difficult. I have a disease which makes me spend most of my time lying down, though I can still sit in a chair. Perhaps he has a more advanced case or something.

agamemnon: I ran my computer in a drawer in my desk for years because I was in school and didn`t want to spend my money on a case... it ran great. Yes, computers are sensitive to such things, but no, the case doesn`t protect them from it, the components themselves usually have all the shielding they need (other than the discharge, but as long as you don`t drag your feet on the carpet and then touch your motherboards bare components you`re good. And if you do, you deserve it) I think it`s a dumb idea cause it looks uncomfortable, not because his computer will break.

Are you seriously calling a laptop a labtop?
It`s called laptop because you have it on top of your lap, not in your lab.

This is a bad idea. There`s a reason computer cases exist. They protect the components from electrostatic discharge and electromagnetic interference. Computers are very sensitive to such things. If you want a monitor on your ceiling, run a cable...

The cooling fan is built on the power supply unit. That is the power supply unit which has to have a cooling fan no matter what. The hdd laying side ways is bad for it. This guy fails!

I wonder:

1. Everything is screwed shut to the wall, but power supply just hangs there on a thin thread. Why?

2. Is it a really high bed or a very small room?

3. How can you live in a room that is almost all red?
