An Amish PC for 55K USD PLUS? A Redmond, WA, company specializing in building high-end PC systems into handcrafted furniture will do just that in custom furniture of various styles for a price. "The trend is covering up and building in technology," said John Wojewidka, a veteran of the custom PC business who started Truvia in response to growing demand for PCs that didn't look like PCs. "People don't want the technology itself to be the centerpiece of their living environment." Truvia uses PCs designed for a life cycle that's much different from the two-year replacement cycle typical of the PC business and are intended to be upgraded. The PCs are built by VoodooPC who specializes in high-powered machines for game players among others.
