I stopped by BFG yesterday, makers of the Phobos—a mega performance/home theater PC aimed at the rich and the lazy. Their touchscreen-wielding Phobos is an understated beast of a PC, but I'm more interested in what they're planning next.
We were intrigued by the teaser shot of BFG's Phobos gaming rig and its touchscreen interface—but now the details have revealed a lot more to be excited about.
