Just buy a Dell gaming pc prebuild or build yourself one.
Walmart is in collaboration with the Verge
It all makes sense now!
laugh out louded
OK, i just watched the video.......
As many regulars on this site know, i really try to not be negative.
But i in short, i dont know what WalMart was thinking...
Seems from the comments iirc the reason they got the low end model is because it was a shipping error and Walmart shipping absolutely sucks.
Even still these prebuilts sound like overpriced garbage and even prebuilts from other manufacturers with similar specs are much cheaper, would avoid or just build yourself.
Yeah, there are many prebuilts with better value.
I was hopeful about Walmart after Bitwit’s video. Now, Steve has shown us the light.
I saw the vid when it first came out.
I still don't know why Walmart decided only to make "high end" systems, they could've marketed themselves well to families that aren't rich if their cheapest model wasn't $1400, because let's be honest it'll be parents that buy these. Guess that's a good thing though now less people will have to deal with this headache.
Also dell isn't much better, both dell inspiron or "Alienware" are massive ripoffs. Cyberpower PC and iBuyPower offer better value and have a slightly better reputation. You can't get a good value from a trustworthy pre built manufacturer, it's just not possible.
There's a few thing I've been researching about the oem of walmart's power supply for these line of desktop. They're are called "Green Wall" and are apparently a very popular brand in china. The one in the walmart's op lineup is 80+ rated officially and has some decent heatsinks so the power supply isn't exactly a fire hazard though they, of course, could of used a better oem for these systems.
Its Great wall, not Green Wall ;)
They are actually a bigger OEM then one may think. They actually OEM for some Corsair units such as theier SF line including new SF600 Platinum, which gets solid reviews: http://www.jonnyguru.com/modules.php?name=NDReviews&op=Story5&reid=567 / some TXM units: http://www.jonnyguru.com/modules.php?name=NDReviews&op=Story&reid=528 and CS Series
They also make cars and toothpaste as well so I guess that's a thing as well?
Yeah, they're insanely over priced (hey, that must be what OP in their name means) and ****** quality.
