This gorgeous PC casemod was made from a restored antique phone box and handset. The ‘DialupPC’ casemod was created by the maker on Intel’s request. The phone on top can actually function as a landline phone, as well as a Skype/Google Talk phone. It also houses a full fledged PC in its innards. It has a 3.4Ghz Intel Pentium 4 Extreme Edition CPU with 512MB Ram, 80GB Serial ATA, and a Laptop DVD-Rom.
Skype was just becoming popular back then, along with MSN’s voice chat. My then-girlfriend (current wife, congratulate me!) and I were on this antique shopping craze and I thought it would be fun to build a throw-back mod with present-day functionality. This is how the idea DialupPC was conceived. A Skype, MSN voice chat-ready (and now Google talk) PC with a retro twist.
