This transforming PC tower could be a robot in disguise

Remember that time when Hasbro got really upset with ASUS for calling its convertible laptops Transformers, only to have its request for sales injunction shot down by the court? A little over three years later, we find ourselves staring at a desktop PC dubbed the H-Tower -- a collaboration between ASUS ROG and In Win -- that is begging to be given the same name. At the click of a button, the tower's outer case breaks open to reveal the liquid-cooled core frame, which then tilts up slightly for easier access to the components (or probably just to make it look cool). Surprisingly, we heard from ASUS that it intends to mass-produce this awesome machine, but there's no word on whether it's an Autobot or a Decepticon. Our money's on the latter. Anyhow, we've got a video clip after the break.
