Nice product

Well, I don’t actually prefer “mini” PCs because in all cases it’s not mobile, so I’d prefer a large case with extension slots! I will call it small “limited” PC.

However, It looks simple and classic which I like it. May be it’s good for who is not looking for upgrading it, but anyway I’d bet it’s expensive for it’s size.

This looks suspiciously like a mac mini…Like they say, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

when i first looked at it, first thing that popped into my mind was the mac mini… however, this looks even cooler than the mac mini to me.  The chance to run windows, with some very nice graphics, and it is even smaller than the mac mini.  I still have yet to see the mini PCs like this catch on in the market though

From the website, ” the ATI RV620 display card to not only allow easily handling of digital media files for multitasking requirements, but also to offer excellent audio-visual performances for PC Games.”
Not sure what games this box would play ‘excellent’ (Solitaire perhaps?).

It’s definitely better than my little Shuttle PC currently used for my home theater PC.

Since its target is more related to people that have home theaters, it is good to know that it can provide a 1080p output thanks to the HDMI interface.

Just the name mini is enough of a deterant for me,i need a powerful machine now,all this compactness doesn’t come cheap.

I really like the fact that this Mini PC is small, light-weight, and doesn’t take up much space.  If I brought this PC, I would replace my home PC with it!  I could easily carry it around the house and even connect to it remotely to configure it from my laptop.  With Windows Vista Home Premium installed on it, it’s great for entertainment!  The integrated speakers on it look great also.

Cool. I need some family-orientated items in our house.
