The £1,127 (inc. VAT) asking price sounds astronomical for just a base unit that's barely larger than a toaster. However, adding up the internal parts and taking software costs into account, MV's charging around £150 for the assembling, installation, and 3-year warranty support that you wouldn't receive with a self-build approach. Is it worth it, then? For an experience builder who likes to go their own way, probably not. For everyone else who wants a sexy, svelte, quiet, small form-factor PC that's ideally geared up towards gaming, and who was £1,100 burning a hole in their wallet, the answer has to be yes.
