how to have a cheap wall mounted pc

hi

the eeepc has vesa mounting holes but it is fairly limited as a pc

so, i thought maybe something like this

http://www.ebuyer.com/product/152258#

create some sort of bracket to hold the pc behind the screen and mount it all onto a vesa mount

then hook it up to some speakers (or alternatively buy a bigger monitor with built-in sound), use a bluetooth keyboard and mouse and bob's your uncle


anybody got any better ideas?

What about a laptop, take the motherboard out and screw the case flat on the wall, then put the motherboard back in.

You can either leave the screen on, as they will turn 180 anyway, or take it off, and just leave the base on, with the keyboard

That's exactly what the wife and father in law said to me when I said I wanted a wooden PC. Between laughing at me that is:thinking:

a lead is a lead is a lead

a small desktop case and a shelf just level with top of tv would be better than buying such a pc and mangling it?
there fore possibly invalidating the warrenty.

it's really just to try to create something that looks a bit cool, is space-saving, without the costs of an imac

plus i don't want an imac

at the mo, my pc takes up a lot of desk space and i was just trying to think of a way to eliminate that

It wouldn't look cool. It would look stupid. To save space sell your pc and buy a laptop.

i think that's a bit harsh

it would only be a slim pc hidden behind a screen

i already have a laptop

I agree, but such comments are what we crackpots on the edge of innovation have to live with eh? :-D:thumbsup:

I just think it's a silly idea. I mean, how many of your friends' houses have you been to, or do you know of anyone who has a pc on the wall?
I rest.

And 50 years ago, how many of your friends would have had one of those silly telephone things. I also rest :lol:

Chill ur beans!

I know plenty of people that have hidden PCs including ones built into the wall.

OP. if you want it for your desk then this may be an option (dell SX280):

If it's cheap that you are after, then build it yourself. Make yourself a case to hold a mini ITX motherboard on the inside and the monitor outside. The Intel little falls 2 now has a dual core Atom processor.

It's not hard to make a bracket out of sheet aluminium. The acer or a Dell hybrid would be small and easy enough to do.

Or you could look at something like this http://linitx.com/viewproduct.php?prodid=12190. You could put a cut down XP (n-light) and boot from CF. It would be plenty fast enough to run a web browser and Vlan. Then just wirelessly connect to your old PC that you can hide in the corner of the room.

Very interesting article, but the most interesting bit is that to upgrade from single core to dual core atom is only $13 or about £9. So hoping that in 2009 you will get dual core netbooks for £200.

some interesting stuff here

i simply don't have the balls to make a pc from scratch otherwise i'd be sorely tempted

it seems cool is in the eyes of the beholder

the type of thing i'd need would have to include enough processing power for photo editing, plus have a dvd drive

however, those tiny little falls things would be great to bolt onto the back of, say, a 22" monitor and use as a simple pc/web browser for the bairns.

and, deek, i personally think something like that would just look WAY COOL MAN!!!

Maybe it would if done properly. I just imagine that if you have to ask on here then you're probably not up to doing it properly. Good luck to you if you have a go. Hope it turns out how you want it to.
