Impressions Of The Micro PC
Mini PCs and THG go back a long way. Our last article on the subject drew a tremendous response - hundreds of e-mails prove that there's a huge interest in new and compact shapes and sizes. At this point in the proceedings, here are a few pictures of the micro PC that give you a general idea of its functionality and usefulness.
The Jadetec Micro PC is smaller than a notebook, and, except for the keyboard and display, its components are fully-integrated.
A glance at the connectors on the back: besides USB 2.0, FireWire (IEEE1394), network, modem, S-Video, SP/DIF and sound, there's even 1 GB network.
The Micro PC head on: the standard CD-ROM drive can be replaced with a DVD or DVD/RW burner. There are also USB 2 connectors and an infrared sensor for Fast IrDA.
The Jadetec viewed from the side: the vents let in air to cool the P4 processor.
