schultzeworks design studio has reinvented the desktop. the outcome is ‘philco PC’ a retro-styled personal computer which is influenced by the 1954 design classic philco predicta, mixed with a bit of modernist minimalism.

lead designer dave schultze states: ‘the result is a design aesthetic that blends multiple elements of the familiar, but with some surprisingly fresh styling that just so happens to house a state-of-the-art windows 7 PC.‘

  • the design could be simplified more and adding up some energy saving focus it would be a great product to fight the current imac design.

    well for this one i really like it and it have a certain unique feeling 😀
  • I like it very much.
    Please consider to design a laptop line Windows compatible. Its very difficult to find a well-done Windows notebook if you compare to mac.


    el concha de su ma!!
  • i don’t like styling, i prefer good design. it seems to be instable. in my opinion the displayed content should come to the fore, not the machine itself.

  • The keyboard and mouse are stellar.

  • wtf? why imitate a retro style on something which didn’t even exist back then, if it was a tv or a fridge that would have been justified. bad design

  • very nice product. wonderful color

  • Well done, nice design-

  • I like the retro orange in a new avatar.
