The Cube247 Electra ST10 is our current joint Best Buy in the Power PC category, boasting a triumphant string of components.

Offering not one but two 500GB hard drives is a sign of intent on the part of the Cube247 Electra ST10 - even if we doubt most users will be able to make use of so much storage space. The Cube247 Electra ST10 does offer 4GB of superior Corsair memory, and the Mirai is a very decent screen.

There’s even more to relish in the case of the Cube247 Electra ST10's 768MB nVidia GeForce 8800 GTX. Okay, it’s not quite as fast as the Ultra, but there’s not much in it, and this remains a sizzling performer. Even the sound system tends towards the stellar. You could complain that the speakers (good though they may be) are 5.1 rather than 7.1, but the latter appears to be out of fashion these days.
