How we score

The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

Engadget Summary

Digital Storm's Bolt is a gaming PC that manages to combine a relatively small footprint, solid performance, a good range of customization options, and a reasonable price. PC Mag says the Bolt "packs beefy power into a slim, sexy package," and is a "great choice for a PC gamer with a smaller room and a smaller budget." Kotaku calls the high-end Titan configuration a "high-powered gaming PC with all the goodies in as little space as possible without it melting." The Boit's small case does present some challenges for upgraders; Hot Hardware says "the space inside the chassis is so limited that you’ll have to work fairly hard to keep your cabling clean and tidy enough that it will all fit." However, Hot Hardware points out that the pre-built systems have "plenty of good hardware inside," so you may find that an off-the-shelf configuration is all you need.
