Computers For The Rich and Famous

If you are serious about computers and gaming then you will have to spend some time alone with the web site I'm about to show you. Seriously.

I've passed on these links to a few of my geek friends and they went into immediate shock. A few even had to assume the fetal position in the corner because it just overloaded their mind and made their new custom built system looks like a cheap Fisher Price Toy. It was really that bad. wink.gif

Once they came out of the shock their first reaction is to call Visa for a credit limit increase or immediately plan to knock over a bank. In other words, please don't continue to read this if you recently spent all your money on a new computer or if you have less than $5000 in the bank that you can spend. What you see here will keep you up at night trying to figure out ways to buy it!

press_machl38.jpg This, my friend, is the L Mach 3.8. To start, it features 3.8GHz Accelerated Hyper-Threading Intel® Pentium 4 Extreme Edition CPU with 2MB L3 Cache, a 512K L2 Cache, and a 950MHz System Bus. If thats not enough you can order systems with as much as 2 Terabytes of storage and up to 16GB Total RAM with optional RamDrives or up to 4GB PC4200 533MHz Dual-Channel Performance DDR RAM! In addition it has everything else you can imagine. LCD multi-information displays on the case, 6 in 1 Flash Memory Card Readers, digital VU meters, USB 2.0, and Firewire 800, the best in video graphics cards, and even the cooling system in itself nothing less than AMAZING!

hollywood_intro_page_over.jpg If their desktops weren't enough to send you into shock then the 17" Hollywood Laptop will. This system is faster and more robust than most desktops sold in stores or by direct retailers!

As the name suggests it has a 17" widescreen display which is WXGA 1440-by-900 pixels and is optimized for high speed graphics such as gaming. Since it was designed to directly compete with desktops it features at least a 3.20GHz Hyper-Threading Intel® Pentium 4 Extreme Edition CPU w/ 2MB L3 Cache, 512K L2 Cache, 800MHz System Bus, up to 2GB of 433MHz Dual-Channel DDR Memory, up to 80GB of storage using a 7200rpm HD, ATI Radeon™ 9600 PRO AGP 128MB DDR Memory, Integrated CCD Video camera with full-motion video at 30 frames per second in 24-bit color, and IEEE 1394 FireWire & USB 2.0 connectivity. You also have a choice of an optical drive: CD-ROM, DVD-ROM, CD-RW, COMBO (DVD-ROM/CD-RW), or high-speed 2x DVD-Burner (DVD-R/-RW.) To round it out it has an Internal 10/100 LAN, Internal 56K V90/92 Modem, Full Bandwidth 32-bit PC CardBus Slot, internal Floppy Drive, 6-in-1 card reader, Internal Sub-Woofer with surround sound, a TV-Tuner with Remote, and an optional internal wireless LAN 802.11b/g and/or Bluetooth multi-Channel. Imagine bringing just this baby to a LAN party -- oh and you better not let it leave your sight because it will walk away on its own!

Now that you've been totally tempted to get one of their desktops and laptops you need to be careful to avoid looking at their Monitors. I won't even go into describing them. They simply must be seen to be believed.

Enough about L's products. I have some stock to sell and an armed robbery to plan. wink.gif

Update:
A few people have claimed that L is a hoax. But I know its not because my friend ordered a 17" Hollywood Extreme laptop and has received it. Yesterday he ran some checks and benchmarks and it was completely as he ordered it. L also had a booth at Comdex last month showing off each of their products. ComputerWorld just picked their monitors for their Annual Cool Stuff: Super-Geek Specials Guide. Lastly, the UK's Inquirer just had this article specifically dispelling the "hoax." (The UK's Inquirer should not be confused with the tabloid we have in the US.)
