The OS is Windows 7 and the Core i7 CPU can be one of several models up to the Extreme Edition. Storage is up to 2TB with space for two HDDs inside the machine.

The machine comes with a DVD burner stock and can be upgraded to Blu-ray. A USB 2.0 port and USB/eSATA port are located on the front panel of the machine. The computer uses a 500W power supply. The machine measures 8.5" x 7.5" x 13.1". The machine starts at $1899 and will get much more expensive than that when the GTX 480 and high-end CPUs are added.
