Cube247 have a new website

Cube 24-7 Award Winning Computers

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
  • Firewire

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:

Microsoft Windows XP Pro SP2

Now that’s the kind of upgrade options that I like.
