Futuristic, cylindrical TVBE computer wants to rule your digital life

Laura June

The geniuses over at CLVE Computers have, somehow, and at long last, managed to make a tiny Atom-powered PC that looks just like an evil but adorable garbage can with fangs. Inside the TVBE is a single or dual core 1.6 GHz Intel Atom CPU, the option of 1GB or 2GB of RAM, a 320GB or 500GB hard drive, and an Intel GMA 950 GPU. It also boasts an impressive six USB ports -- four on the bottom and two on the top -- on an otherwise austere exterior. The whole package weighs in at a breathtaking 9.9 pounds, and measures 9.6-inches tall. This bodacious beast is on sale today for the "fair and affordable" price of €299 (roughly $384) in Germany, with the promise of availability in other countries "in the very near future," which we can only hope means in time for the holidays.
