"Overall, the Vorticon is a very nice machine, but is it worth plunking down your hard-earned cash?

In my opinion, unless you derive pleasure from building your own machine, it definitely is. Even with shipping and handling, you'll probably save a few bucks on the hardware and get support to boot. If I were in the market for a new machine, I'd buy this machine in a heartbeat. Actually, despite the fact that I already have more machines than I need, I seriously considered buying the review machine.

If you're in the market for a new Linux workstation or desktop machine, take a serious look at the Vorticon. It might be more muscle than you need for simple browsing or desktop use, but if you're doing development or anything that requires serious speed, this is a great way to go. If the Vorticon is more muscle than you need, Pogo also does custom orders and has less expensive single CPU Intel and Athlon machines."
