With all those Christmas cards coming in the mail, we're paying a little more attention to that box at the end of the driveway. We spotted this Mac-turned-mailbox on Gizmodo last week, but it's not the first techie mailbox we've seen.

That #55 Mailbox is an Apple Power Mac G4 (released in 1999) that's been recycled and retrofitted to collect snail mail instead of email. (Via Gizmodo)

But we previously saw another graphite G4 Tower that got turned into a street side mailbox. The brilliant twist? Mail slips in through the disk drive! (Hot or Not?: A Mac Mailbox)

If you're a PC, a closet Mac living in a PC neighborhood or you just like to be a neutral tech supporter, you can snatch up a generic computer mailbox. Although we're not sure $229.95 is worth making your mailman smile. (Computer Mailbox Takes Geek Decor Too far)

If you want to show off your techie side without turning your mailbox into a computer, you can go the route of the Space Invaders mailbox. Take a cue from one crafty gamer as she hand-paints our favorite 8-but aliens onto her standard-issue mail bin. Bravo! (Space Invaders Bring Intergalactic Warfare to Your Mailbox)

Or if you'd rather show your techie side by being high-tech, get yourself a mailbox and house number that lights up through the night thanks to solar power it collects during the day. (Your Address is Illuminated with a Solar-Powered Mailbox)
