Velocity Micro Vector Z20

 

The Velocity Micro Vector Z20 ($1,699 direct, $2,198 with 26-inch widescreen monitor) is an excellent system with some pretty good 3D gaming thrown in. On its own, the Z20 is certainly impressive, but you have to ask yourself: Do I want a cheap gaming...

Blazing performance numbers, including games. HDMI port. Large hard drive. Blu-ray reader. Included programs, such as 12 months of Norton AntiVirus, aren't preinstalled. Large hard drive

Pricey for mainstream segment. No wireless networking

The Velocity Micro Vector Z20 is a decent alternative to the major manufacturers, especially if you consider its gaming prowess. If you discount gaming, however, there are cheaper alternatives that keep up with the Z20's multimedia performance.
