Computex is a huge show for PCs. Normally, the shells that encase those PCs are nothing to think about, but case modification has a solid footing in the industry. Companies take advantage of trade shows like Computex to draw attention to themselves by showing off the most creative, outlandish and playful case mods.

Case in point, this jet fighter-ish case mod looks more like an amazing and expensive toy.
