Dirac Noah Mini PCs

Dirac on Monday launched the Noah, a barebones PC kit for silence- and space-conscious computer users who still value desktop storage. The casing includes a single, quiet 80mm fan to cool its internal components, which themselves are low-powered courtesy of more efficient Core Solo, Core Duo, or Core 2 Duo processors. The system emits a virtually inaudible 13.8dB of noise, Dirac claims. Personalization is just as important to the company: in addition to stock black, silver, and white front skinks, the Noah is customizable with bolder colors such as blue, red, or green.

Expansion is consciously limited in the design but provides room for a desktop-sized hard disk and optical drive as storage. Peripheral expansion is supplied through either a PCI Express x1 slot or a mini-PCI slot for Wi-Fi adapters and other communication devices. The system is certified for Intel's Viiv media center initiative and can sit vertically with a statnd. Dirac ships its platform now for an unlisted price.
