Evesham MiniPC Core 2 Duo
Though Apple is widely rumored to use the Core 2 Duo in its Mac mini systems after Labor Day, it will not be the first system builder to announce an ultra-compact PC using the new processors. Currently available using the original Core Duo processor, the Evesham MiniPC is set to use the new chip in a design very similar to the Mac mini in shape and size. The small media hub will be powered by a 2GHz Core 2 Duo, 1GB of RAM, 100GB of storage, and a digital TV tuner that can accept over-the-air HDTV broadcasts. A DVD-RW drive, Firewire, and S-video output are also included. Evesham's system is expected to ship to Britain in mid-September for £799 ($1500 US) including tax.
