A PC, shaped like everyone's favorite pastry.

With all of the problems modern rectangular-box computers have with cooling, why doesn't someone make them in the shape of a donut, with a fan in the center and the components radiating out from it? Simple, even cooling...

       Sorry, shouldn't have assumed that everyone else has the same yeast-risen, glazed monkey on their backs that I do. :)

       CROISSANT - clue for you

       This is *The* preeminent Croissant-aware site on the Internet. It is sacrilige to compare a donut to everyone in the halfbakery's favo(u)rite pastry. Fishbone.

       Croissants are best served warm, which will further hinder the cooling process.

       I sense the aroma of a follow-on idea half-baking in someone's head.

       Yes, even though I love donuts, I think that to say it is the favourite of HalfBakery's users is heresy. (sp?)   

       What if the computer spins around, expelling...the heat...by centrifugal force..?

       You could have stationary hard disk platters with the read heads and the rest of the computer rotating around them.

A crashed donut is a sad pastry.
