NUCs are a popular line of mini PC’s (not to be confused with Nucks, which is the nickname of a terrible hockey team), and I thought I’d make one look like the shutdown prompt from Windows XP, of all things.
Truth is, I thought about including some of these design cues in the previous post, even a Start button from the taskbar would be thrown in. Decided to nix the idea, because I was already trying to convey so much information. In the end, I think it works great as this PC case design.
If you Google NUCs you will notice a sea of grey boxes. I think there’s room for a more colorful and lively design like the one above, if you ask me.
One thought on “Windows XP NUC PC Design”
I would probably change the buttons to POWER, SLEEP, and RESTART, now that I look at it.
