IBM IntelliStation M Pro 6219 and in-sync Blade 2.1

 

Big Blue has been around for a long time and while the company does not specialize in video editing, they know a thing or two about building a computer. For production houses where time is money and rock-solid reliability is a necessity, this IBM...

M Pro 6219-46U

 

The 3.06GHz Pentium 4?based IBM M Pro 6219-46U is housed in a compact and stylish case.

Consumer review by:

I needed it to be wider

Product is overall a good product but needed to make modifications in order to get it to fit my shower door.

Consumer review by:

Wonderful Product

 

I LOVE these casters. I have Elfa storage wire baskets from the Container store and have never been able to find anything to fit them until now. These securely fasten and are just what I was looking to find. They are easy to insert into the bottom of...
