MIGHTY PERFORMANCE.


It actually looks like something i'd want to attach to the back of my monitor via the VESA mounts, but their stupid press release doesnt talk about anything actually related to the unit itself - its all about the bloody intel CPUs.

No price, availability or PSU information? core 2 extreme might work, but not if they include a 60W PSU

Looks interesting, I assume it would require an external HDD though, still not bad.

Why don't they use AMD for these?.. Better chipsets, and soon better CPU's. I bet their 45nm single cores are gonna be great.
