    Now this is an interesting concept that makes sense: Acer unveils 'building block' Revo computer - BBC News

    Although it initially looks cool, the problem with this is that it appears to be Acers own proprietary system and isn't supported by any standards.

    Why would someone want to lock themselves in to an unproven proprietary system, with an unknown future? For example with the portable harddrive, why not just use a USB portable harddrive, which will also plug into any other PC/laptop? And when it comes to adding the other parts such as graphics card, voice block, extra drives, etc. the size starts to grow and then you're left in the position where it's no better than a desktop PC, where you can already easily add/replace those parts yourself anyway.

    Nice idea, but I can't see it working as a proprietry system. If tech manufactureres are serious about modular devices, they would all need to get together and agree on standards, but by the time they do that it'll probably be too late, where everything most users would want will come in an Intel NUC size box, with non power users just using their phones on big screens.

    I guess I am an optimist. I am hoping that more manufacturers would band together and establish s standard for the interface.

    Such thing is feasible, as it has happened previously. The IBM-Intel-Microsoft standard in the 1980's made the PC revolution possible.

    Oh I thought when I read the title that it was an actual case built out of Lego's but yeah I can see the attraction I guess, I would just be a bit concerned about the heat in such a case where everything is so packed up together and there seems to be no space in between.
