MiniPC Core 2 Duo

MiniPC has just unveiled two new small form factor PCs made for performance-minded users. Of these, the LF870 series innovates by mounting a cooling fan at the top of the case. The design lets the system run quietly compared to many compact systems, says MiniPC, and keeps the interior cool enough to be reduced in size while still including a PCI Express X16 slot for dedicated graphics. The cooling also permits a 2GHz Core 2 Duo and a 250GB desktop-class hard drive in the base model. MiniPC is shipping this preassembled system in Japan for the equivalent of $1153 US.

Those less concerned with graphics performance also have the choice of the VT870, which exchanges dedicated graphics and a desktop hard drive for a smaller case and even quieter acoustics. With Intel graphics and a 40GB laptop-class hard drive, the VT870 debuts at $1082 US for a complete system. Click through for large photos of both MiniPC models.
