Professionally built computerized coffee table
If you’ve fought the battle with your significant other over having a computer in the living room, this might be your answer. Built into a nice-looking coffee table, this computer lets you play MAME, games, movies, music and more without the beige box.

I think that any good nerd already knows about the arcade emulator MAME. Well, it’s also on most of those nerd’s to-do lists to build a MAME cabinet, but where do you put it? Well, you could always build it into a coffee table so that it’s always handy and ready to play, but that’s a ton of work.

Well, lust no more. This professionally built computer-coffee-table is available in several styles, all of which will let you play MAME and other games, as well as stream music, movies and more to your TV, which is likely in the vicinity. Included in the professional level build is a professional level price. However, for your money, you get a very complete and ready-to-run system:

  • Intel® Pentium® D – Dual Core Processor
  • 160GB hard disk
  • 4 USB 2.0/1.1 ports for plug & play capability
  • RJ45 Ethernet 10/100Mb connector
