Actually, that sounds like a pretty neat idea. I'll have to check it out...

Simple... To differentiate it from the hordes of other technically
identical PC's available. If I had to choose between a standard PC-type
case and something like that (on a consumer level) I'd definitely go for
the oddball. Consider Bang and Olufsen stereos -- same thing.

Hmmm... Seems to me that two PC's stacked on top of each other is just
about a cube. So, why not a case that has two motherboards, with an
integral Monitor/kb/mouse switch...

Okay, so maybe there isn't any point or anything, but I still think it's a
cool idea... Hmmm... Mac on one side, PC on the other?
