Boutique Back to School — Velocity Micro Delivers PCs for Students Heading Off to a
New School Year

Built with the kind of care and craftsmanship the behemoth manufacturers can't offer, Velocity's award winning back to school solutions meet students' needs

Richmond, VA — July 2, 2008 — Velocity Micro, the premier independent builder of custom, high performance PCs, announces the return of the award winning Campus Edition desktop and notebook, and the launch of Velocity Campus an interactive website for students to explore and build their own back to school dream machine from the ground up.

"The Campus Edition is based on the simple idea that - better than anyone else - we can satisfy the needs and desires of students heading back to school. Velocity is known for building PCs with the kind of care and craftsmanship the behemoths can't offer," said Randy Copeland, President and CEO of Velocity Micro. "The award winning Campus Edition PC combines boutique craftsmanship, industry leading support, and unbeatable value into the best possible solution for back to school."

The Vector Campus Edition desktop offers premium level craftsmanship and reliability without the premium price tag. Spec'd out with an Intel® Core™ 2 Duo processor, ATI® Radeon™ HD 3450, TV tuner, cavernous storage, and low latency RAM, the $799 Campus Edition is an all in one solution for a cramped dorm room or crowded first apartment. The Campus Edition handles everything today's student needs - recording TV shows, creating and editing digital content, gaming, surfing - even homework. Lighted case fans and a side panel window add boutique flair and style to this no nonsense all in one, back to school PC.

The NoteMagix C90 Campus Edition notebook provides raw desktop power in a mobile platform. Ideal for wireless web surfing, video chat, and compiling a digital library of photos and video, this $999 notebook is everything a student or mobile professional could hope for. Features like an integrated 2.0 mega pixel camera, biometric fingerprint scanner, and a glossy black finish put this notebook at the intersection of style and substance.

Velocity Campus is this season's destination for back to school shoppers. Featuring video guides through the Campus Edition offerings, the option to fully customize a back to school PC, an interactive wizard to select the right system, and the up to the minute information on new technology and product launches.
