Default Go-L is real...

Alright guys, I guess it is real. Maximum PC magazine just posted an article which used a real Go-L mach 3.8 and they tested it to the limit. It worked perfectly and in all fairness smoked everything they compared it to. The editor of MPC were a little ticked off by the **** wiring job and the 4 18GB hard drives (thats 72GB of storage w/o formatting in a RAID 0 array), though the hard drives were 15,000RPM Ultra320SCSI drives.

So, in short, it is real. If you want to splurge, go ahead. Ill be still saving for my G5 and all the rest of you guys will probably wish for computers made by an established gaming company like Falcon NorthWest and Alienware.

The Go-L mach 3.8 really is the greatest ever pc build, it blows away anything ever built before, and it will take alot to knock it off the top,

Here is a link to a features page, and just dream away while reading, it really is something from another planet

yeah i saw that issue on newstands too. it still is a overpriced piece of crap though. most pc hardware techs can make a machine with the same performance for much less money.

It seems to me like they've over-clocked all the components. Also, that picture, with the small blue LCD screen on the front of the case looks "photo-shopped" in to me.

It looks ps'ed in on the website, but in the magazine it is the real deal. It does everything they advertise it to do. Its too bad Go-L is stupid at marketing, though. All this bad press they got isnt helping them establish themselves and they are doing nothing to prove to people that they are legit.
