Vista Custom PC




There are all kinds of ways that you can celebrate the launch of a new product: a gathering, cake, or even banners. Microsoft is doing it in style though with a custom PC that they teamed up with Dell to build. I have to admit that it does look pretty sweet but what is even cooler than the graphics on the case are the mad specs that this thing has:

  • Intel Core 2 Duo E6700 Processor
  • 512MB NVIDIA GeForce 7900 GTX
  • 4GB RAM Dual Channel DDR2 SDRAM @ 667mhz
  • 1Terabyte RAID0 SATA HDDs (2x500GB)
  • 48x Combo + 16x DVD+/-RW Double Layer Burner
  • Dual TV Tuners (Analog)
  • Dell 30″ Widescreen Flat Panel Monitor
  • Full 5.1 Surround Sound

They even capped the thing off by including a 30″ monitor! The Windows Vista Team Blog says that there were a few of these built and one was raffled off at the Windows Vista Ship Party that Microsoft had. I would venture to guess that the whole system setup (without any custom graphic design on the case) would probably run around $6,000 so this beast would be especially awesome to have on hand!
