Surely you’ve seen the custom Digg case that has been floating around for some time. It was made a little while back by the guys at Computer Choppers as a tribute to the awesome site founded by Kevin Rose.

If you’re obsessed with scouring the contents of Digg, you might want to show off your love by bidding on this one-of-a-kind computer. That’s right, they’re putting it up on the auction block. The starting bid is $2,500.
