Dream Machine 2009
The WINDOWS team constructs Dream Machine 09 using a CPU that can handle eight simultaneous threads, boasts 6GB of memory and uses two SSDs running in RAID 0. If you’re curious about what other components feature in Dream Machine 09 and fancy taking the machine home, read on…
In unison a keyboard and mouse provide a complete interface that allows an individual to interact with his PC and the software running on it. In line with this Dream Machine 09 needed a top quality mouse that boasts a superb tracking engine, has enough shortcut buttons for app and game use and, of course, is comfortable to use.
Calling on our review’s database and browsing the web we found ourselves looking at Logitech once again. In particular, the firm’s awesome G9x Laser proved to be the best mouse for our Dream rig as it satisfied our criteria on every front.
The G9x boasts a sophisticated laser-tracking engine that is capable of a maximum resolution of 5000dpi. The engine is also capable of processing images at a rate of 9-megapixels a second and can deal with 30G acceleration, so you can be sure that every movement you make will be tracked and reflected on screen.
Besides its spectacular tracking engine the mouse features interchangeable grips, a weight-tuning system and sports LEDs that can be customised to suit your rig’s lighting. The grips and weight-tuning really help on the gaming front because you can choose between a wide-grip or one that promotes precision. And depending on whether you prefer your mouse being heavy or light, you can add or remove weight to suit your preference. The mouse also allows you to dynamically adjust its tracking resolution so you can speed things up or slow them down when you want more precision on screen.
Building Dream Machine 2009 would have been impossible if not for the support afforded by a number of companies. With this thought in mind we’d like to pass on a heartfelt thank you to the following firms: Creative, Corsair, Gigabyte, Intel, Kingston, LG, LiteOn, Logitech, Thermaltake, Western Digital and XFX.
Dream Machine 2009 is a superfast machine comprised of the hottest components in the PC consumer market and if you’re green with envy, you’ll be happy to know that you can actually take this beast home.
