Great Studio computer

It Simply Works!

system is always in the way and for work I do not want twitter, Facebook
nor other iOS features.
I read that Sw... read more [+]eetwater assembled and tweaked its own computers.So, with trepidation I decided to purchase a Windows 7 box for my DAW.
The way Sweetwater has set up the CS450 it is simply the best
experience I have ever had booting up a new computer. Within a day I was working. ..(Unlike the HP Z800 I use).. As Apple would say: It Simply works.
I would have given it 5 stars but a computer of this caliber should be
running Windows 7 Pro. Upgrading from Home Premium was easy but a little annoying so that the CS450 could use the full 24Gb of memory I
installed. It's a small point but I think merits a half star deduction.
However, the care SW put into making sure the BIOS and the OS is
running at optimum level, puts even Apple to shame.Sweetwater has assembled a quiet rig that is fast, smooth and unlike Apple or HP I have not had to call tech support within the first few days of ownership.
This is the best experience I have had in using a new computer. Windows
7 is very easy to use if you are used to OSX.
It comes with a 2 year warranty too, so there are no hidden costs. I
highly recommend this computer to anyone working with audio for video or multi-media. It's more than powerful enough to handle Video sound editing.
And anyone wanting to switch from OSX 10.7 to Windows 7, Sweetwater
provides a great computer and wonderful service. close [-]
