New “all-in-one” echoes Amiga
Cybernet has stuffed a computer into a keyboard, drawing forth a few nostalgic tears from the Commodore Amiga lovers in the PC Pro office.
The Cybernet Zero-footprint PC may not be for the Crysis enthusiast, but the specifications aren’t too shabby. Beneath the keys it crams in a 750GB hard drive, 4GB of 667MHz DDR2 memory, an optical drive and an Intel Core 2 Quad processor.
There’s also four USB ports, an Ethernet port and a credit-card swipe reader, hinting at its target retail audience. Anybody hoping to go wireless will need to fork out an additional £50, which will bag you an internal 802.11g wireless adapter.
Graphics are handled by an Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 3100, which will be enough to keep Windows shining prettily, though you’ll have to buy a copy of the operating system yourself as one isn’t supplied.
Similarly you’ll need a monitor to plug the ZPC into, somewhat undermining its claims of being an “all-in-one”.
The ZPC is available direct from Cybernet, with prices starting at around £315.
