Most of these boutique systems are good for your basic Photoshop needs.

But to get a rocking system that you will be happy with to run programs like Maya, It is better to piece a system together yourself. You will tend to get more for your money if you buy parts when they go on special. Usually for that 1K price you only get the lowest GPU available. A good card like an Nvidia Quadro will run you 1K alone.

Most times, I find that these systems tend to be overpriced to match the market. Since they want to hit up the pros who will pay double the cost of parts for the convenience of having a turnkey.

I like iBUYPOWER. I'm usually horribly picky, and build my own systems, but after having this one for quite a while now, I find it to be a care-free beast.

I'd definitely recommend them to a friend.

What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?
