Not really. You can do damage to some PCs by attacking other bits of the
hardware (erasing the bios etc) but they are actually a lot better
protected nowdays then some years back.

If you don't have the root password and expertise I imagine throwing it
out of the window or feeding it iron filings will work just as well. That
is physical system access tends to imply you can break it.
