AOpen's Pentium M-based XC Cube Mini MZ855-II

AOpen XC Cube Mini MZ855-II

Half the size of its last iteration, AOpen's XC Cube Mini MZ855-II is a small form factor desktop weighing in at 4 pounds, measuring 7.75 x 4.25 x 12.75 inches. They scored desktop power in a small case by endowing it with the Pentium M processor normally found in notebooks (less power consumption, less fans, less bulk). AOpen will be putting out fully-configured consumer models, but will also offer a bare bones version for the user who wants to build their own — that'll come in at $449. There's also the option to add an "expander" module that stacks on top of the Cube Mini's case, and can be configured in a number of ways to include hard drives, CD/DVD drives, power supply, cooling equipment, or audio amplifier and/or speakers.
