5 stars out of 5
Housed in an extremely compact and lightweight aluminum and Lucite case with a clear window on the removable side panel, the Poly 880NF2-2700XGL is easily the lightest system reviewed here. Lightweight only in heft, howeverthis system turned in very high performance figures. But perhaps the most remarkable feature of the Poly 880NF2-2700XGL is its extraordinarily low priceonly $1,750, excluding a monitor and speakers. Compare this to the performance figures and the prices of other systems here, which also exclude monitor and speakers (see the feature table online at www.cadalyst.com/reviews), and youll see what a great value this system truly is.
The Poly 880NF2-2700XGL AMD-based workstation, from Polywell Computers, delivers outstanding peformance at an entry-level price.
Also included is a good assortment of software, including Nero Burning ROM, InterVideo WinDVD4, and Microsoft Windows 2000 Workstation with Service Pack 3. The Poly 880NF2-2700XGL is covered by outstanding warranty support from Polywell60 months on parts, 36 months on labor, and 24 months of onsite service. Next-day part replacement and 24-hour telephone support is included for the first year. This is an exceptional support package for an inexpensive system. This is easily the best price/performance value here. The Poly 880NF2-2700XGL is that rarest of all things, a high-performance CAD/CAM workstation at an entry-level price. Highly Recommended.
