Intel SFF Computer
Intel today made a surprise introduction of a complete new PC of its own. Instead of serving as a reference platform, the D201GLY is a full small form factor PC designed for everyone ranging from businesses to developing nations and schools. It achieves this without making many of the sacrifices in cost or expansion that often plague other SFF systems, says Intel's Chris Tobias. The case can still hold a full-length graphics card and uses a low-power Celeron instead of a mobile CPU to keep the price down while still keeping the inside relatively cool.
Other specifications weren't publicized, but Intel's pioneering desktop should see its worldwide launch on May 21st at a $299 price, matching the cost of bulkier towers. [via DigiTimes]
