Why the heck is '' complaining about price? Since when were hardcore gaming rigs cheap? And since when do they care more about aesthetics than actual performance?

Seriously though, it has SSD standard, performance 3.2Ghz AMD APU, High Performance 8GB RAM (DDR3) and I also think there's a Radeon 7000 series GPU (I forget if it's the APU integrated or not though). On top of that, it's ridiculously easy to swap parts in and out.

I think they need to come out of the closet.

My issue is that you have to go through Xi3 for the parts.
