Hmm... I heard about a computer being made from a microwave, and, also a computer built into a bed?

How about a computer built into a TV, or, even a cardboard box? haha

I was thinking about doing something like that with the microwave but man I am not sure if I want to spend that much incorporating an lcd into the microwave handle, I have also had ideas about using a regular nintendo or something.

I would most likely have to use a laptop mobo etc like with the atari, i was hoping for like a huge pig looking style gaming system that could house alot.

i have a friend who wants to sell a laptop for fifty, i would like something that could house a desktops essentials instead of a laptop

looking more and more into the microwave though

I saw someone put a PC into a Lotus Elise or Exige R/C car shell.

Can you buy new DVD burner drives that take CD's in like the PS3/Wii does?

Yeah, that's called slot loading. It's a lot more expensive though.
