Video: Live at the San Francisco Holiday PC Showcase

The first-ever Windows PC Holiday Showcase was a huge success! Over 40 press, analysts, enthusiasts and contest winners joined me, Brandon, Ryan and dozens of the season’s hottest Windows PCs for a night of great food, cool music, and fun gadget talk.

Rather than make you to read a long, wordy post about all of the gear we had at the event, Ryan and I thought that it would be more fun to show you. Check out the video for a quick overview of our favorites (including the crazy-awesome ORIGIN Big O!) and a look at the beautiful 12 Gallagher Lane art gallery.  I was particularly fond of the lit pedestals we used to display each PC – it really showed them off as pieces of art:
