These days, having a killer gaming setup isn’t enough. It needs to look the part as well. And while you can find everything needed to build a monster machine at home on Amazon, going the third-party route may deliver the type of irreplaceable look you may be craving.
Love Hultén is doing just that for a limited number of gamers. Fifty to be exact. Its new Datorbox compact gaming system offers everything needed for VR and 4K content in a small form factor. Vintage styling bucks the latest trends of LED lighting and see-through cases for a timeless look that is sure to standout at the next Homebrew Computer Club meeting…
There’s a lot to love about the Datorbox, and at just 50 units being made available, it’s likely to sell out quick. A retro-styled enclosure is highlighted by a front-panel that displays six big bulb-caps, a USB port and port button. A Saturn punchout design on top allows for airflow, along with cutouts on the sides. You’ll find the remainder of Datorbox’s I/O on the backside.
An Intel Core i5 or i7 processor powers this desktop computer alongside a Nvidia GTX 1060 GPU that can handle both 4K and VR content. Much like Apple’s iMacs, you’ll find dual hard and solid-state drives inside Datorbox. This Fusion-style setup is made to cut down on load times without charging the full price that comes from using flash storage only.
The back reveals four more USB ports (oddly a few of which are 2.0), HDMI, DVI and DisplayPort out, plus headphone/mic and VR ports. It does ship with Bluetooth and 802.11ac radios, as well. Datorbox weighs in at just over six-pounds all together and does not ship with any other peripherals. Good luck finding a monitor that matches the throwback styling of this PC.
