Systemax Venture VE55

Systemax finished its week with the release of the Venture VE55. The PC house joins the increasing shift towards eco-friendly PCs and markets the mini tower as one of the most power-efficient desktops yet. A new Via mainboard and 1.5GHz C7-D desktop processor let the computer stay under 20W of consumption even at peak load, the company says. Choosing the Via hardware also results in an almost completely carbon-free with only a small, quiet fan setup to keep the system cool.

Costs are also kept extremely low through a careful mix of parts and software. The base model at $300 ships with an 80GB hard disk, a DVD/CD-RW combo reader, and just 512MB of RAM (up to 2GB) but is preloaded with Windows XP Home rather than Vista, eliminating the need for more expensive parts. Moving up to the $400 model adds XP Professional. Both systems are immediately available from Systemax.
