    Smoothcreations (www.Smoothcreations.com), a leading manufacturer of Custom PC gaming systems, desktop workstations, and Laptops, introduced today, in collaboration with Intel , are proud to announce the Smoothcreations “Prophet i7” series.

    Stop showing up to Lan parties with gaming rigs that look like some else’s pc. Turn heads, and then shred them with the Prophet i7 series. The first portable performance PC from Smooth Creations.

    Configurable options available in price point category platform solutions. The Ultimate LAN party system: The Smooth Creations Prophet i7 series was designed to intimidate, perform and back up every piece of trash talk you fling at your gaming buddies. These custom painted gaming beasts deliver the graphics-shredding processing power you need to conquer your next LAN event.

    “The Prophet i7 Portable design makes it easy to go to those LAN parties without having to lug heavy pc equipment around”, Mario Gastelum, Product Marketing. The “Prophet i7” models are stacked with Intel Core i7 CPU’s and a tasty choice of Diamond Radeon HD4870’s or 2x 4870X2 H20 Special Edition graphics cards in Crossfire configurations. Or you can choose some ass kicking BFG Geforce 280 GTX’s or 260 GTX’s in SLI or TRI SLI configurations. Be rest assured that not only will you have a screaming looking case – but a serious war gaming machine that will get you the highest frame rates playing Crysis or Far Cry 2. Any i7 Platform that is built with a pair of BFG's Geforce 260 or 280 GTX will get a FREE custom painted BFG logo & themed fender guitar and a free copy of Far Cry2.

    (Ed. note: The green/gray Hellcat system image has been added, so you get an idea about the look of the casing from Smoothcreations)

    “Every Prophet i7 system is custom painted”, Mario Gastelum. We don’t outsource our painted artwork like some of our competitors – by sending their customers pc cases to a car paint shop, Smoothcreations maintains inhouse our own design team.

    Smoothcreations teamed up with some of the best partners to deliver the best-breed Core i7 solutions Platform, like MSI, Corsair, Kingston, Patriot, Corsair, GSkill Memory, Intel, BFGtech, Diamond, Western Digital, Lite On, DFI, and Silverstone, Tagan, Epower, as well as Water Cooling Mavens Danger Den.

    The beautiful design and artwork is only rivaled by it’s modular design. For those whom want simply an awesome personalized pc at a price they can afford, The “Prophet i7” makes sense.

    For those that want the real deal, you can have expensive imitators, or you can have a Beautiful and evil performing pc and a work of art at an attractive price point”.

    Powerful indeed but also tacky and plain old ugly. The toyish fluorescent & plastic aspect seems aimed at the 10 to 14 year old demographic
    Sorry, my opinion.

    Lose the bling, stick all that hardware in a Lian Li Tyr 2000 and then you've got my attention.

    Great hardware, Great machines, but apart from the artwork, I would rather build it myself and spend the extra buck I save on a HD TV.....Love the Artwork, though!

    Damn, 7k$ for a lossy wc job ?? I would rather buy the custom painted case only and send it to ava or maingear to build the parts$wc system. All of this for half the price.

    I really don't even like the paintjobs :ohwell: That, plus the poor wc, makes me think of these as "ricer" comps :shadedshu Sure they have powerful hardware, but it's not put together very well. Many of us could do a much better job inside the case than they seem to have done, I would think.

    If you like the "riced out" look though, I say buy the cheapest one of these you can, then sell off any of the hardware you don't want and build it yourself.
