Digital Storm has just announced what looks to be the thinnest gaming PC yet, the Bolt. At 3.6 inches wide and 14 inches tall, this thing is attractive to me. For comparison, my gaming PC is 2 feet tall and has a shipping weight of 100 lbs.
Digital Storm designed their own chassis for the Bolt to get this slim profile, but thankfully worked in proper heat dissipation. The cooling they've built uses five copper heat pipes, giving overclock possibilities reaching up to 4.6 GHz with the i7 3770K CPU. Not bad, says the Obama face.
The Bolt looks pretty affordable, starting at $999 for the base model, which features a Core i3 2100, 8GB of RAM, a Nvidia GeForce 650 Ti 2GB card, and a 1TB hard disk. At the top end, for just under $2,000, you'll get that i7 3770 with 16GB RAM, a GeForce 680, and a SSD drive. I'll take that one, please.
