Have been wanting to upgrade my computer and saw this article. Has anyone seen this. I thought it looked pretty sweet.

I saw two of these rigs @ the ORANGE distribution center here in Atlanta. They were both in need of repair evidently and had been sent back. I gotta say it's a really cool idea and a great frame for a guitar player smile.gif But from what I"ve heard, they do run a bit hot and sometimes, fail under load.

Interesting. That is one thing I noticed looking at the picture that it did not seem to look as well ventilated as a regular computer case.

I won't lie, I've been tempted to buy one, but I'd much rather just have the case and put it on my current PC. biggrin.gif

"500GB Hard DIsk Drive;
4GB DDR3 1600Mhz
OPC Instrument Interface 24bit, 96hz ULTRA low latency
2 independent ¼" jack inputs for guitar, microphone or instrument, switchable and attenuated
High-gain Wireless B/G/N
Optical & Coaxial S/PDIF outputs
Intel® Core™ i3-540 Processor (4M Cache, 3.06 GHz)
Windows 7 Home Premium 64 Bit
Stereo Amplifier with 2 x JBL 6.5"Dual Concentric drivers"

Not bad, but I bought a Dell with 8GB of RAM, 1TB of Hard Drive Space and quad core processor for like $1,200. This computer is $1,500. You could probably build your own PC to specs better than my own and still be well under $1,000.

Yea, I think you are right. Just something about it, it's a cool gimmick.

Oh definitely, I agree. I'm not saying it's not a great computer for recording, and even a USEFUL gimmick, but it just isn't worth $1,500 (to me). If you want to get it though, the specs are quite nice.
