FIC's Piston, the cylindrical SFF PC

FIC Piston

We know there are going to be a lot of people who are into FIC's latest SFF (small-form-factor) PC, the Piston, which they're showing off at CeBIT. The P4-based barebones pico-BTX machine isn't much different from the rest in its class—carryable size with integrated handle, DDR SDRAM, PCI-Express, Ethernet, four USB 2.0 ports, drive bay, S-Video, 7.1 surround, and even a mini-PCI card slot; but we gotta admit, $400 is a little too steep, especially for something that might be easily confused with Bazooka subwoofer. Then again, it does actually have a subwoofer built into the chassis (better buy some EMI shielding for that hard drive) as well as two small speakers, so it all kind of makes sense in the end.
