Would this make a good replacement?


Don't laugh... well, okay, you can laugh, but the Thermaltake X-Ray is a surprisingly practical product.

The Thermaltake X-Ray is great for any home or office, allowing you to use cigarette adaptor accessories outside of your car. Besides that with the Thermaltake X-Ray you always have a place to keep your drinks, at home, and more importantly at LAN Parties. Now you don't have to worry about mixing drinks up with the people around.

Plus, you'll be the weird guy who has a cigarette lighter and drink holder in their computer, doesn't get much better than that, does it?

The beverage holder portion has an eject button, and can be closed when not in use.

Use car accessories (charge Mobile phone, PDA Notebook etc.. )
Beverage tray
Convenient for LAN party gamers
Fits for 5.25" drive bay
Lightweight with aluminum & plastic housing

The people who always suggest you get a 450W power supply should recommend that as well, to make the 450W worthwhile.

Actually, I was wondering what kind of internal power spike you would get if anyone actually tried to use that lighter.

I'm too paranoid to have liquid that close to my running PC. Turn your head, and some careless person will brush by and spill the contents all over your machine.

once spilled a bottle of coke over a workmates laptop. Drained it, dried it, and miraculously it still worked!

Incredible! That stuff is so sticky and corrosive I'm amazed it survived.

Maroule fried his laptop that way, I think. Nav is lucky. :beer:

My last boss had one of his kids put a slice of french toast (complete with syrup) in their VCR. :lol:

I put a CD into a 5.25" floppy drive once. I ended up having to take out the drive and push the CD out with a screwdriver.

I hope it was an Enya CD or something equally worthless.

Speaking of tea, the worst thing is grape juice. Very stainy, and it's very sticky when dried. Cola is also sticky, but not as stainy. I recently got up the nerve to take apart my favorite radio to clean up a years-old dried cola stain. The spill never got beyond the rubber mat underneath the keys, but it did put a band around three or four buttons that made them difficult to press. The only way to reach the keys was from behind, taking away the back cover and the innards until I could pull the keys out from behind the face.

good memory, MDA...
I fried it by spilling coffee on it. The sugary mixture (I drink my expresso whith loads of sugar) went everywhere and killed the poor bastard (an Acer)..
