CyberpowerPC Intros New Fang Mini Series

Looking for a PC gaming solution in an ultra-small form factor? CyberPower may have what you're looking for in the form of the FANG Mini series, measuring just 4.5 x 4.3 x 2.4 inches. The FANG Mini R9 starts at $799 and the FANG Mini pro has a starting price of $889.

For starters, the FANG Mini R9 packs a quad-core AMD A8-5557M APU, Radeon R9 M275X graphics (2 GB GDDR5), 8 GB of DDR3L memory, a 1 TB 7200 RPM hard drive, Wireless AC and Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity, and Windows 8.1.

As for the more expensive FANG Mini Pro, this mini PC includes the quad-core Intel Core i7-4770R processor, integrated Intel Iris Pro Graphics 5200, 8 GB of DDR3L memory, a 1 TB 7200 RPM hard drive, Wireless AC and Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity, and Windows 8.1.

Both models also include HDMI and Mini DisplayPort outputs, Gigabit Ethernet, four USB 3.0 ports, a 3.5 mm headphone jack with SPDIF support, and an integrated Kensington security slot. The two SO-DIMM DDR3L slots can be configured with up to 16 GB of memory, and there's an mSATA slot for an extra SSD. The 2.5-inch expansion bay can hold another SDD or hard disk drive.

CyberPower suggests that these two tiny gaming PCs would be ideal for a crowded entertainment center, or mounted on the back of a large display. They're even small enough to be easily carried to LAN parties (if you dare) without the hassles of dragging around a huge gaming machine.
