Pcalchemy intros Alchemy Series media PCs


Pcalchemey's (yeah, that's how they spell it) busted out a new line of configurable Media Center PCs, with four different models in its Alchemy Series available to tweak to your liking (and budget). Regardless of the model you choose, you'll get a Core 2 Duo processor (from a T5600 on the low end all the way up to an E6700), along with Intel Viiv technology, Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005, and a Gyration Media Center Remote, which, as you may know, uses motion sensing gyroscopic technology to control cursor/mouse movement in addition to the usual up/down, left/right action (no sensor bar necessary). Prices start at $1,499 for the low-end Alchemy RE, which also happens to be the smallest unit (pictured after the break), all the way up to $2899 for the default config on the Alchemy XE (seen above), although you can bump that price up even further if you opt for some of the pricier upgrades, like a Blu-ray burner, or an extra half terrabyte of storage if the standard 1TB isn't enough for ya.
