Puget's Serenity, as configured, goes for just over $2800USD. While that may seem a bit steep for a machine that delivers mid-range gaming performance (albeit on the high end of the scale), remember that solid-state drives still command a pretty penny. Throw in a premium i7 860 processor, a Blu-ray drive, as well as a HD 5750 video card, and you see how these upgrades quickly add up on top of the system's very reasonable $1500USD base price. And if you demand high-end gaming performance from a silent PC, Puget offers a second HD 5750 card as an option.
What you're not paying a huge premium for is the system's silent performance. Though Puget does offer some additional sound dampening upgrades, the machine's silent performance owes mostly to good design and careful component selection rather than layers and layers of foam or pricey specialized hardware (yes, an SSD might qualify as both pricey and specialized, but it's an upgrade and the 1.5TB platter drive was whisper quiet as well). This approach provides substantial benefits for the customer. Puget's designers and techs figure out what works best in the R&D phase, allowing the buyer to get the most bang for his or her buck.
Does everyone need a silent computer? No. However, for those who desire such a thing, the Serenity delivers solid gaming performance, an excellent multimedia experience and superb performance of day-to-day computing tasks-all in an almost completely silent package-for a very reasonable price. Combined with Puget's well-respected post-sale support (including a 1-year warranty, lifetime tech support and free shipping in both directions for repairs during the first 30-days of ownership), the Puget Serenity delivers solid, reliable performance in a package that your ears won't even know is there.
