Duke of URL: Pogo Gigahertz System Review

"The people over at Pogo Linux have done it again. They just came out with their new AMD Thunderbird Gigahertz system, which they have dubbed Altura. Before you ask, I don't know what the name means. Pogo's last offering we reviewed was one of their Winux systems. This machine strays from the Winux configuration in the fact that it doesn't include VMware, but does include an impressive dual boot setup that easily outclasses many other comparable offerings from other companies."

"Pogo manages to pull off a great machine in their Altura. It consists of high-quality parts from major brand companies, it is very well- built, with no corners cut at all, and is all in all a very good system. Pogo pulls off the dual boot very well, with Linux being the main OS. Who would have figured, since Pogo is a self-proclaimed Linux Evangalist company."

"The Altura performed well in everything I threw at it, gaming, general usage, cooling, you name it."
