At Puget Systems, we do a LOT of testing. We believe that computers should be a pleasure to purchase and own. They should get your work done, and not be a hindrance. To do that, they need to be the right hardware for the job. We take it on as our mission to test and validate the industry's most popular applications, ensuring the software runs properly, and that our hardware is optimized for performance. We have found that this type of information is often either not available at all, or is extremely dated and no longer accurate. So, we share this information freely. The goal of our recommended systems program is to contribute our knowledge back to the community.
