When it comes to computer cases, you don't have to be stuck with a boring grey box. PCs have been packed into everything from pianos and petrol pumps to whisky bottles. We've rounded up the 20 most unusual PC cases.
Dean Liou's DialupPC
This telephone may look like it escaped from Alexander Graham Bell's living room, but under the hood the DialupPC is an all-digital, VoiP-ready special, circa 2004.
Built by modder Dean Liou of Envador.com for an Intel-sponsored event in the US, this PC rocks a 3.4GHz Intel Pentium 4, 512MB of RAM, an ATI Radeon 9800 graphics processor, an 80GB hard drive, and a DVD-ROM drive.
