Mouse Vista Gaming PCs
Continuing the slew of pre-announcements for systems using Microsoft's latest operating system, Mouse today released a set of new pre-built gaming systems, each shipping in a dark black and sporting aming-friendly options such as thin-profile speakers or Shuttle's carryable 17-inch LCD. The NEXTGEAR line (pictured) represents the system builder's mainstream system with a Coolermaster designer case, running Vista Home Premium. An entry-level model begins with a 1.86GHz Core 2 Duo, 1GB of RAM, 250GB hard drive, and GeForce 7600 GS video; a higher-end counterpart with a 2.4GHz Core 2 Duo, double the memory, and a GeForce 7900 GS is also ready for more demanding gamers, Mouse says.
At the summit is the company's MASTERPIECE, which upgrades to a case with more aggressive case cooling and Microsoft's flagship Windows Vista Ultimate. It adds to the NEXTGEAR's performance with a GeForce 7950 GT and a larger 320GB hard drive. All three systems are planned for a simultaneous launch with Vista on January 30th. The NEXTGEAR versions will sell for $947 and $1,484 in Japan; the MASTERPIECE will be available for $1,813. Click through for photos of both PCs. [via Impress]
