Velocity Micro offers a well-rounded catalogue of systems, including notebooks, home theater PCs, as well as more traditional home PCs. But the company’s bread and butter are its gaming rigs–its Raptor and Edge series desktops. The Raptor series is the higher-end of the two models, with more hardcore specs, customization, and tweaking. The Edge series is also geared toward enthusiasts, but is focused more on finding a balance between high-end components and affordability.
…It’s not often that you hear the word "value" applied to an enthusiast system, but that is exactly what the Edge Z55 represents. Yes, there are cheaper systems that will probably give you comparable performance, but they probably won’t be built with the same attention to detail as the Edge Z55. And yes, you could also pay a lot more and get a hard-core, top-of-the-line gaming rig with custom painting. The old adage still applies: you get what you pay for. But not everyone has money burning a hole in their pockets–especially in today’s economy. If you want a system that you can play any of today’s games and also run any mainstream app, the Edge Z55 will meet your needs.
