With a ticket in excess of Â£150, the RC1100 is on the pricy side but does look the part. And not only does the colour scheme work well, it's clear that the quality control has been ramped up.
There's also epic storage potential - up to 8TiB if you install another 4-in-3 module, with enough space left over for a couple of optical drives.
Tied with the pre-installed fans and the cooling potential - including liquid cooling - it's an out-of-the-box solution that offers a great deal of scope to the ambitious user. Ideally, though, it would be one who's not too fussed about noise. By modern standards and the standards set by the original COSMOS, this newcomer is far from quiet.
