Smooth Creations Diablo PC
Smooth Creations has aimed at rivals in the exotic PC realm with its Diablo performance tower. Like similar offerings from Voodoo PC and similar custom shops, the PC can be had with an individualized paint scheme that extends to obvious peripherals such as the display, keyboard, and speakers. An added touch, however, is the option of buying a 30GB or 80GB iPod that will also receive the treatment; the dock will also be color-matched if it's bought at the same time, Smooth notes.
A base system is available now at $3,500 with a 2.13GHz Core 2 Duo, 2GB of RAM, dual optical drives, and a 640MB GeForce 8800 GTS for video. Custom selectons allow for up to a quad-core 2.66GHz Core 2 Extreme, dual GeForce 8800 GTX cards, and dual hard drives. Adding the iPod raises price of the system by $349.
