Do you mean this:

It looks like a 70s TV turned into a flat-panel monitor attached to a flattened G4 cube. But hey, that's just me.

Fortunately, it's only a concept.
It looks like what we would have got if the Apple Lisa had been designed in the 70's. Yuk

Given HP/Compaq's current worries, the next HP case will probably be cardboard.

Why not?  They've already got the cardboard cell-phone, and they're talking about the cardboard laptop.

HP could actually be ahead of the curve with Cheap & Shoddy this time.

I actually like the funky old school look, it's all nostalgic. Kinda reminds me, actually, of a ToS prop, or some other pre-80's cheap sci fi show. Besides, I'd be all for interesting or even kitschy external appearance as long as the innards of it worked well. Too bad you can't have performance benchmarks for conceptual models.
