Trigem LLUON Crystal
Known best for its Averatec notebooks in the US, Trigem today has released the LLUON Crystal, a new desktop it will balance the difference between the size of ultra-compact PCs and the performance of larger towers. The system is just 1.8 inches deep but comes with a desktop-class hard drive as well as a 256MB GeForce 8400 GS video card that helps drive Windows Vista and HD videos. Notebook Core 2 Duo processors are the key to the slim size and also render the system quiet enough (below 30 decibels) to sit in a living room, Trigem explains.
A base Crystal starts at the equivalent of $1,278 with a 1.66GHz Core 2 Duo, 1GB of memory, and a 320GB hard disk. Stepping up to a $1,490 model increases the clock speed to 2GHz, doubles memory to 2GB, and adds Wi-Fi for networking computers across larger homes. A 22-inch LCD is available along with a card slot for adding expansions such as a TV tuner. Trigem is offering the new LLUONs as of today but has not announced intentions to release the computers outside of Korea. [via Akihabara]
