Once again Digital Storm has made a winner. Small, powerful, QUIET. Easy to hook everything up to as it is so light to move around. You could put this anywhere the footprint is that small.
It's my husbands system that I bought for him. His comments: "Wow it's so quiet"! "Nothing like your Syndicate (which sounds like a jet)" "Love being able to move it around and set up" "This is awesome" "No offense honey but I'm so glad its not a light show".(Hey!)

Pros: Inexpensive, Design is beautiful, Light weight, Very mobile (for gamers a fabulous LAN party), Quiet.

Cons: We put some gripping material on the bottom because when you go to put a CD/DVD in, it will move around. No biggie. And that is it!!!!!

Digital Storm has the best customer support and that is why I will continue to buy from them. This is our 3rd system and I'm sure will not be our last. DS stands behind there builds!

Great looking system. It is still surprising what they can do with that small size.

Very nice review and pics.  I really like the bolt.  I love small form factor PC's and the bolt is really awesome.  It offers sweet case you can only get from digital storm.  Very compelling even to those who, like myself, build our own PC's.

Is your husband a gamer?  Or did he just want a really nice PC?  Either way totally awesome!
