FAQ:

Q) A computer out of LEGO bricks? Won't it fall apart or melt?
A) The case is sturdy and will not fall apart unless dropped or mishandled. Shipping, a lego computer has not been done before, consider this a 'case' study. Hopefully everything will go right as bubble wrap is pretty resilient. However, in the event anything goes wrong, we will work to fix any minor issues that occur in shipping over the phone or email. If anything major goes wrong, we are fully responsible and will pay for return shipping, fix it and send it back.
Q) Are you associated with LEGO officially
A) NO! LEGO is a trademark of its owner. This is simply a case made out of LEGO blocks and is not associated with it any way. This was a project started out of love in free time. Some people asked where they could buy one and this is the result.
Q) Why is this computer so expensive?
A) The bricks themselves were approximately $150 and all of the parts are top of the line.
Q) Do you have any more pictures?
A) Yes. There are 26 pictures available of the computer.
