    Velocity Micro, the premier builder of award winning enthusiast desktops, laptops, peripherals, and the remarkable line of Cruz tablets announces the immediate availability of the Vector Holiday Edition desktop and VMultra drive external peripheral, priced at $599 and $199.99 respectively. Both are available directly from VelocityMicro.com.

    "PC shoppers are tired of the bland, plastic designs of those behemoth manufactures that fill their systems with bloatware, mass produce product in China, and outsource support to India," said Randy Copeland, President and CEO of Velocity Micro. "We've created the Vector Holiday Edition to be a viable alternative to those brands, by offering our expert build quality and award-winning support at a mainstream price."

    Designed, built, and supported in the USA, the Vector Holiday Edition takes the boutique sensibilities that have made Velocity Micro a top choice amongst enthusiasts and makes them more affordable to mainstream users. The system is fully customizable with options that include quad core processors, up to 16 GB 1600 MHz RAM, solid state drives, and powerful discrete graphics. Specs of the $599 Vector Holiday Edition configuration include:

    - Dual core AMD A6-5400k Processor
    - 8 GB DDR3-1600 MHz RAM
    - AMD Radeon HD Graphics
    - 1 TB 7,200 RPM HDD
    - Choice of Windows 7 or Windows 8
    - 1 Year US-based warranty
    - Lifetime in-house phone support

    The VMultra Drive combines four different peripheral devices to create a powerful external hub that's a perfect accessory for All-in-Ones, Ultrabook devices, notebooks, and netbooks. Features include an external DVD±RW drive, USB 3.0 hub, SD card slot, and 500 GB back-up storage solution. Orders for the VMultra drive will begin shipping Nov. 12th for $199.99.

    That's expensive for what's little more than a DVD RW drive and a 500GB HDD, would of been better had it been able to read BR discs aswell.

    Would be perfect for an ultrabook... I think it should be priced more around $175, but I'm sure the price will come down sooner or later.
