Is it a bike? Is it a computer? How about both? While laptops, especially gaming laptops like the Alienware M17x, are fine for gaming, it’s hard to beat the entire PC systems that have been tricked out especially for gaming, but if you travel frequently for LAN parties then perhaps a laptop might be a better choice, unless you don’t mind lugging around all your cables and peripherals, or if you are Rene Grau from CM Storm.

Basically what he did was build a case mod that combined the CoolerMaster HAF X gaming computer with a gas powered mini bike, and before you think that this is just a quirky case design, it’s not, as not only is the computer a fully functional gaming rig, but the gas powered mini bike is equally functional.

The CoolerMaster HAF X features an Intel Core i5 processor, 300GB SSD, and a 4GB GeForce GTX 460 graphics card. The gas powered mini bike features a two-stroke engine and dual exhaust, with its speed peaking at about 40 mph with the gaming rig and its driver on board.

It definitely does not look comfortable as there does not appear to be any cushioning, and it’s probably a good thing Rene Grau chose an SSD given the bumpy nature of the road. It’s a pretty good concept especially if you need to take it to your local LAN party. We don’t imagine that it is road legal nor too comfortable, especially if you’re planning on traveling between states. Check out the video below for a demonstration.
