-- brown senior editor for CNET they're gonna take a look at the velocity micro vector campus version. This is a -- and nine mainstream desktop has a few boutique PC kind of performance tweaks to it. Opera overall this is sort of designed offered mainstream computing optical if you need a lot of fast CPU power. So if you know velocity micro -- the should look like a pretty familiar case companies use the sort of squared off violent designed for a lot of years now. That's pretty nice pretty clean I may be -- -- boring at this point but. Overall the certainly worst case that there's those kind of hard to complain Francis is pretty straightforward there's a dvd burner here -- a spare optical drive slot -- top. That here you have -- SD card reader on the side there's a viewing panel appeared to Nestle touch. And here you have a couple USB two ports as well as analog audio jacks and firewire.
