Like the screens, not sure I need lights on my ears though.

I was looking at their PSUs on Newegg last night. Anyone have an idea who the manufacturer is?

I wholeheartedly agree.

I'm kinda digging the ROG Loki SFF PSU. Up to 1200W is insane for an SFX-L power supply. Images weren't available yet when I wrote the article, but it looks like ASUS has posted them on its website now.

The OLED screen seems nice, but I wonder a) what it will cost, and if b) it will have the matte coating it is rumored/shown to have. Matte on an OLED can mess up the beautiful picture/contrast/colors/etc. The one good part is that it will have DisplayPort, although LG just announced they are finally releasing a 42'' OLED screen which will have full HDMI 2.1 (48gbps) vs the somewhat neutered 40gbps on the C1 (like the 48'' I have at my desk now).
