AWP - Accessories, Warranty, & Price
When you are about to spend thousands of dollars on a new system, we would hope that you have higher expectations than just a case with the best parts money can buy. All American does not add much to gouge your wallet and pad theirs. What we mean is some builders will add little items that raise the cost of the overall system but are not crucial for every user.
Most companies may not think as much about the box your computer ships in as AAC does. AAC uses a Benson Box design to safely ship your computer anywhere. From the Benson Box Website: "Most customers experience between 60 and 120 shipping cycles for a Benson Box." AAC ships all computers in one of these boxes, while the box costs $250 extra if you wish to keep it for your own purposes. If you do not wish to keep the box, AAC will refund the customer $250 once AAC gets their box back.
They are serious about getting your system there in one piece.
A mouse and keyboard were included with our test system: a Logitech Black Internet Keyboard and a Logitech MX518 optical mouse. These accessories had their own pre-cut section in the Benson Box.
AAC included samples of Novus Plastic Polish number 1, 2 and 3: Clean & Shine, Fine Scratch Remover, and Heavy Scratch Remover - just in case you put a scratch in that beautiful acrylic case.
