I like small PCs. I remember back when people called them shuttle computers because almost all of the small form-factor PCs were manufactured by Shuttle. I’ve still got a couple around my house, but they’re still rather bulky. The smallest is around 3 ½ inches wide by 11 inches tall. Much smaller than your standard ATX case, but it looks huge in comparison to a Mac mini. There are a lot of smaller PCs around these days, but most of them don’t look all that great. This one from Trigem Computer looks pretty good though.
The LLUON Crystal isn’t just small, it packs some power too. It has a Core 2 Duo T7200, 2GB of RAM, a GeForce 8400GS and a 500GB hard drive. Like any good tiny computer, it also has built-in 802.11 wireless and even a TV tuner.
While the size, looks and power of this machine makes me want to upgrade, the nearly $1500 price tag is more than enough to keep me from doing so.
