Velocity Micro's ProMagix™ System Receives Editors' Choice Award from
PC Magazine's Computer Buyer's Guide

Virginia Company Places Ahead of Industry Giants in Annual Product Review.

Richmond, VA — November 3, 2003 — The ProMagixT digital media system from Richmond-based Velocity Micro today received the Editors' Choice Award from PC Magazine's Buyer's Guide, after being selected by editors of the leading computer technology publication over competing systems from Dell, Gateway, IBM, Compaq, Alienware and other computer industry giants. The honor also marks the second PC Magazine Editor's Choice Award the company has received in just the past month, and is the latest and most significant of more than a dozen honors and favorable reviews Velocity Micro has received for its high-performance, customizable computer systems this year.

"Choosing our top picks from 35 different PCs wasn't easy," according to PC Magazine's Computer Buyer's Guide, which hits newsstands this week. "The Velocity Micro ProMagix DX-W is our top pick in the high-end PC category because of its powerful components, such as three hard drives and 3.2GHz Pentium 4 processor, as well as its multimedia offerings. Music, photo, and video buffs as well as gamers will be pleased with the software bundle and the hardware, such as the Klipsch six-speaker set." The complete review will be available at, or in the November 25, 2003 issue of PC Magazine, which has a readership of over six million.

"Velocity Micro is redefining the standard in computer technology and service that savvy computer users want," said Randall Copeland, founder and president of Velocity Micro. "The impressive list of national awards Velocity Micro has received is a direct result of our pursuit of computer designs that ignite excitement from our customers. The mainstream, mass-produced systems offered to America's computer users with overseas tech support and a small handful of generic options simply do not meet modern computer users' needs. Obviously, the technology media appreciate our focus on performance and craftsmanship, regardless of the price category in which we compete. I think our passion shows through, too."

The ProMagixT digital media system from Velocity Micro is the ultimate workstation for professional-quality digital content creation, ideal for digital video production, audio and MP3 recording, and any combination of multimedia tasks. Along with superior workmanship, performance and customer support, Velocity Micro offers the very best a/v component selection and a choice of DV editing solutions to maximize the customer's experience.
