Coming Soon: Dead Computer Contest - UPDATE

What can you make with a dead computer? A meat slicer? A funky endtable? A funny hat? We want to know and we'll be launching a new contest to see what you can make with old computer parts on February 1.

This contest will help promote Randy's new book, so enter something awesome!  Start looking around for some old computer parts and get some ideas started. More details, including the cool prizes, to be announced later.

As with all our contests, entries must be published during the contest. Previously published Instructables are not eligible.

UPDATE (1/27):

First Prize (3 winners) -
ASUS Eee PC 1005HA netbook + copy of 62 Projects to Make with a Dead Computer + Instructables Prize Pack

Second Prize (10 winners)
- Copy of 62 Projects to Make with a Dead Computer + Instructables Prize Pack

Dead computer = an electronic device that is a computer or has one in it. So if there's a microchip in there, go to town!

Once again, contest starts on Monday, Feb. 1


Contest is live and can be seen here

hmmm... i wonder what i could do with 2 computer cases, 5 power supply cases, a couple hard drives,  a couple cd drives, and a hellava lot of fans... maybe a computer mobo too...

i know just what to do...
Give me the fans....Me wants fans! My computers always overheat, and I am NOT going out to buy something out at the pc store that would cost me half as much if I actually lived in a city.

Seriously, $24 for a DVI cable?! I can get them at newegg for 5! (+5 for shipping tho) Why does my pc store only have stupid gold plated cables? I don't want gold plated cables!!!
