Oh, they're not quite dead yet then? Nifty, I hope they can round up that funding!

wow, although Apple's edge is that they have one 30" panel, and not two screens to make it up........

With 5 widescreen UltraSpeed™ LCD Panels featuring resolutions of up to a mammoth 19200 x 2400 Pixels
Is it even in the slightest bit possible to power 19200 x 2400 pixels with a single powermac?

the new Athens Display Series are breathtakingly designed, maximizing both their enclosure size and the flexibility of positioning where physical space is at a premium.
You still need a fair amount of physical space to use that beast though. Does it come with free medical care for those who crick their necks trying to see both sides. Would definitely be an experience to view though!

Ahead of it's time, maybe. Look at the specs on their lappies, for goodness sakes. Are those laptops physically possible in a 1.3" thick frame?

A lot of their products sound too far-fetched to be true.

I could strap together a hundred 15" LCDs and say that it's bigger than apple's 30" display... there is no comparison.

That LCD(s) would only be good for flight simulation and someone who designed a site to be horizontal.

I'll keep my 20" ACD.

It's for arch villains, silly :rolleyes: People like that don't have time to browse and play video games. They have planets to destroy and stuff.

Um, yeah...

I've heard bad things about this Go-L joint for a couple years. I don't trust them and their pipe-dream specs.

Their website has a real Apple.com-esque design layout, no?

I'll stick to more convential designs from more established vendors, thanks.

I remember their going-out-of-business page from a year or so ago where they admitted that they took inspiration from (and pretty much endorsed) Apple.

Some of you with time to burn might want to check this out:

Apparently they've been making huge promises with almost no actual product for over 2 years, and all their hardware is merely rebadged stuff from other vendors - when or if available.

Looks like this company is super-shady. I remember coming across this last year after being wowed by the Go-L website's claims. Also IIRC there was a thread here somewhere about Go-L that discussed the shadiness.

HOW THE HELL DO YOU POWER THIS THING.

Each one of those displays is a Dual Link display.

Prob dual SLI implimentations.


As for it being fake. *shrugs* Some of the hardware inside the desktop computers is real enough. The stuff like the RAM drives they call PureRAM is actually rebranded. Everything on that site is doable. The thing is you would have to pay a premium to get it and as you can see....you do which is why the company never went anywhere. This site is old news. There was a flutter of activity on MR about a year and a half ago when this site copied apple.com's page design. Once everyone got over the design the speculations started on if this was real or not. It apparently is a startup to make high end uber PC's but it never took off for obvious reasons....Show me a person who is willing to spend $25,000 on a desktop computer and I will show you someone with too much money. :p

Yes, but can you use dual monitors? I need one of those 19200 x 2400 models for my 37 open documents and another for my 146 palettes.
