What's the price for it? I wouldn't go for it, trying to run a computer with high specs in a case that small could lead to overheating very easily.

Making your own is much cheaper, and you can get better hardware.

High perormance computers that size have been around quite a while.

I suggest you read up on heat-pipe, and other cooling technologies that these baby systems employ. You might not have much room for upgrade. But its very small and easy to move. I can't say if that box specifically has a heat-pipe, but still these things are not going to overheat on you unless you shove them in a closet or something.

Definitely not, you can get a computer that nice for around $900 if you make it yourself.

That system does not come with a Monitor either. At least I have not seen it advertised anywhere as coming with a monitor and the review didn't show one either.

I built practically (if not) the SAME system less the decals and blue light at www.newegg.com for $1,364.48

Even with the price of a decent 17" LCD it comes out close to the cost of just that machine alone.


Thats a sick profit margain

The Price and the system specs, both definitely turn you away from the system.

Its much of a Console type thing, trying to pack up things for ease
