Okay, so the Toaster PC isn't exactly the most attractive mod you can find (although it is a lot prettier than the pizza box mod), but it's still an interesting concept. No, the device doesn't actually make toast, but rather houses a VIA EPIA M9000 motherboard, a 40 GB hard drive, 512 MB of DDR memory, a Panasonic 4x DVD optical drive, a Hauppauge USB TV card, and more.
As for the actual toaster, it was a GE model before the modder ripped out its innards. Toaster PC modder Adam Bertram said the inspiration to build this unique PC came from his significant other.
"My wife came to me and asked to place our old PII tower computer in the kitchen (she has several cookbooks, gets recipes online, etc.). "Now let me tell you that not only is this tower computer huge, it is U-G-L-Y. I don’t even think it would fit underneath the kitchen cabinets, and don’t even ask about the six-year-old 15" monitor," he said. "Now, when I explained all of this to one of my co-workers he suggested a mini-ITX system. I had never heard of this, but when he told me about how small it was, its capabilities, and its price, I thought 'wunderbar' this is it!"
