Home Tech - Amazing Case
by J. Lynn Fraser

While most computer companies are bent on creating increasingly high-tech casings, Thornhill, Ont.-based Suissa Computers is turning the utilitarian PC into something decidedly more organic. Instead of a mass-produced plastic shell, the firm builds stately hardwood cases around the high-performance components. Each is handcrafted by industrial designer Howard Suissa, who will personally install the units anywhere in North America. Includes Windows XP Professional x32, 960 GB to 2 TB hard drive space, LCD monitor, keyboard, mouse. From $6,150. (Shown, Yasuko model in zebrawood and walnut, $7,045). (905) 707-8258 or
