The Firebird with VoodooDNA 802 has an Intel Core 2 Quad 9400 processor, 4GB of memory, a 500GB hard drive and a DVD burner. The Firebird with VoodooDNA 803 has the Intel Core 2 Quad 95500, 4GB of memory, a 640GB hard drive, Creative Labs X-Fi Mini PCI audio card. and a DVD burner, and Blu-ray optical drive with an HDMI port.
Other features make either one also nice for photo and video editing, creating your own music, and pretty much anything else you’d expect from a PC.
The units range start at $1,799 and $2,099. A monitor and speakers are each sold separately.
