FIC’s Ice-Brick is even smaller than the Ice Cube you’ve seen here before, and smaller still than the Ice Cube you saw in Anaconda. But don’t underestimate it. For once in your life, look past the dinky wee-ness! This is the PC analog of Warwick Davis as the Leprechaun: petite but unstoppable.* Why, just imagine all the space this will free up on your desk! You can switch to 2-liters.

But look here, Professor Brainard: this is just the case, power supply and motherboard. You’re going to have to buy your own processor, memory, hard drive and optical drive. And you’re going to have to hook everything up. This is no woot for the technologically impaired. Maybe some of your fellow forum weirdos will help you. Maybe you can program your RoboSapien to do it. But one way or another, some intermediate-level assembly is gonna be required. No one said the life of a computer nerd would be easy. We just hope all those swirlies you withstood in middle school left you with the strength of character you’ll need to see you through this not-all-that-challenging challenge.

The Ice-Brick features a lightweight alumuminum case and, thanks to Intel’s 845GV chipset, supports up to a 3.06GHz Pentium 4 processor and 2 Gigs of DDR RAM. There’s a PCI slot, one 5.25” and one 3.5” drive bay, so you can hot-rod the system with a DVD+RW, huge hard drive, Soundblaster audio, corkscrew, My Little Pony stickers, or whatever your heart desires.

Yippee!

You know, I’ve really got to stop doing this. Were I in college,it’d be one thing. But I work, have kids, and am way too busy to try to get on thiis first damned page.

That said, I wonder about this: Do all of you folks who complain about the quality of the items out here think that your constant rants for another bag o’crap will make any difference about when - or if - said bag will ever again materialize?

Me thinks that the woot folks have hit upon such a great business idea, that they seem to sell virtaully everything they try to (what other business on the planet can make that claim) and that they’ll come up with this sought after bag when they’re damned good and ready.

So why don’t we just enjoy what’s here, and stop whining about a lousy bag o’crap?

(By the way, my coffee maker arrived today. It’s cute.)
