Just heard about them from PC Gamer website...

http://www.digitalstormonline.com/gaming-laptops.asp#viewproducts

And shocked how good their deals are. Mostly because the PC I have no was my first one so I wasted money trying to figure out what compo ants to buy, some of their stuff is pretty good - cheaper and better than what I have.

How about you, how does your PC compare to the ones they sell?

Im kind of intrigued about that console sized PC they sell

Their $800 PC is on par or worse than the $850 PC I built 2 years ago, if that tells you anything.

To customize one on their site that is on par with mine would cost about $1500.

Mine cost about $900 to build in September 2012.

I always find it amusing when these topics come up, as I imagine most old timers on this board do due to the namespace collision.

"- NVIDIA GTX 650 1GB
- Intel Core i3 4330 CPU
- 8GB 1600MHz Memory
- 500GB 7200RPM HDD
- ASUS H81 Chipset Motherboard
- 430W Corsair CX Power Supply
- DVD-R/RW/CD-R/RW
- Microsoft Windows 7"

$699, the cheapest you can get. Mine is better and ran me $630 like 9 months ago. Would've been like $680 if I hadn't been able to reuse my HDD, but whatever. Still cheaper.

I do really like that case, though.
