Wouldn’t it be interesting if you could purchase a PC, not have to use screws, not have to constantly rip apart your PC, junk old parts, and replace them, only to repeat this once every 1-2 years? Jocko Chan from Hong Kong has a novel idea. Basically its a designer chassis that required no screws at all. Part of his vision is to see users renting parts, ie a video card, when its obsolete, the card is returned and recycled and you get a much better video card in return, while continuing payments. Its kind of like leasing a car… check out some design art here. His work was submitted to a design competition that Dell put together called “Regeneration: International Green Computing Technology Design Competition”

This sure would be an interesting concept if it gets backed by Dell.
