MiniPC's compact GF800
Space in Japanese homes can be extremely slim, prompting the creation of computers like the MiniPC GF800. At its longest the case is only nine inches, and it's also just 2.6 inches tall. Accessories do match however, as graphics come from an Intel 945GM Express motherboard, which is further capped at 2GB of RAM. Benefits to the computer include a DVD burner, SATA and eSATA ports, and three video output jacks: DVI, S-Video, and D-SUB/VGA. The base cost of the GF800 is roughly 71,732 yen ($592), but does not factor in the CPU -- buyers must choose between a Celeron, Core Solo, Core Duo, or Core 2 Duo.
