It’s nice to see Cube247 finally have a new website, and it’s looking great.
More than a few months back they relaunched their site only to discover there were problems with it and it was promptly downgraded to a very simple and static brochure-ware site.
The new design looks great, and I love the customization facility for each PC package. That’s definitely something that I look for when buying a new PC: the ability to customize it to my needs/whims, rather than simply buying an off-the-shelf product.
I particularly like the look of the Taurus ST10 with its ‘basic’ setup of:
- Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium
- Intel Core 4 Quad Q6600 Processor
- 8192MB Corsair DDR II 667 Memory
- 1500GB SATA II Seagate Storage – RAID Stripe
- NEC 7170 Multi Format DVD/CD ReWriter
- ATI Radeon 1024MB PCI Express Quad Monitor Graphics
- 7.1 HD Surround Sound
- Intel Core 2 Duo Deluxe Motherboard
- Sony Floppy Disk Drive
- DVD/CD ROM Drive
- 3 x 19″ TFT 8MS Flat Panel Screens
- Microsoft Wireless Multimedia Keyboard
- Microsoft Wireless Optical Mouse
- Creative Inspire 6100 5.1 Speaker System
- 10/100/1000 Ethernet LAN
- 12 x USB2 Ports
I’m most impressed that while it comes by default with Windows Vista Home Premium, for £30 extra you can upgrade it to Windows XP:
Now that’s the kind of upgrade options that I like.
