As much as we like the look and feel of Velocity Micro's Vector Campus Edition desktop, we can't recommend it. It suffers from poor bang-for-the-buck, a lack of configurable options, and a narrow upgrade path.
Velocity Micro's Vector Holiday Edition offers one of the best deals we've ever seen in a mainstream PC. For under $1,000, this system provides a Blu-ray drive, overachieving speed, and room to grow in an attractive, well-built package. We enthusiastically recommend this system to anyone looking for a fast, affordable computer.
The Velocity Micro Vector SX-V delivers computing power and capacity with plenty of room for upgrades--more than just a basic box but still at a rock-bottom price.
Get a first look at Velocity Micro's new gaming computer in action.
Velocity Micro's Edge Z30 is the best deal going right now for midlevel gaming PCs featuring Intel's new Core i7 chips. The overclocked Core i7 860, a fast Nvidia graphics card, and a solid selection of features all around make it easy for us to recommend this system to anyone looking for a capable gaming desktop.
As we've seen from previous Velocity Micro PCs, the Edge Z40 is an outstanding gaming PC and all-around performer for its price. We recommend it to anyone looking for a mainstream gaming desktop.
Velocity Micro's Edge Z55 provides a powerful example of the leap ahead in performance afforded by Intel's new Core i7 CPUs. Any PC gamer would love to make this upper midrange desktop their own.
Velocity Micro's Edge Z15 represents one of the best deals we've seen this year in midrange gaming PCs. It has all the power necessary to play current games (even 'Crysis') at smooth frame rates, and its clean, spacious interior gives you plenty of upgrade room. We recommend this system to any PC gamer looking for a sub-$2,000 desktop.
The Velocity Micro Raptor DCX doesn't quite cross into ludicrous territory, and by staying disciplined, Velocity Micro has come up with one of the best deals we've seen. This PC is a winner.
The Velocity Micro Edge E2250 is a very fast midrange PC, and it's one of the best PCs in its class for digital media editors. Gamers will find a strong foundation with some upgrade potential, but they can get better performance for the dollar elsewhere.
Velocity Micro Vector Campus Edition Review
The good: The Velocity Micro Vector Campus Edition is one of the fastest general-purpose PCs in its price range.
