Super Cool. If you are tired of looking at the grimy exterior of your AC unit and wonder why no one has designed more attractive option, your wait is over. We spotted this in MET Home and had to post it because it is so smart, so cool and so expensive and so confusing to understand that it bears a second look.

LG's Art Cool line of ac units (from $1,700) is a very different beast than the box we have in our windows. This one has "a slim, interior wall mounted evaporator unit and an outdoor condensing unit. Ultraquiet, the machine has an air purifier and dehumidifier" - and, of course, changeable panels. Oh, and the air blows out around the sides of the panel as well as the small slit in the front.
