AOpen Inc. announced Tuesday its newest entry in the small-form-factor barebones PC arena.
The XC Cube EZ661 series of barebones PCs supports Intel Pentium 4 Prescott CPUs of up to 3.4GHz with Intel's Hyper Threading Technology, and has an external bus speed of 533/800 MHz. The EZ661 also features a 275-watt power supply as well as two S-ATA connectors.
The XC Cube EZ661 is specifically designed for home and office use and includes: Built-in 5.1 channel sound; onboard graphics; built-in 1GB/sec high-speed Internet support; four USB ports, three IEEE 1394 ports; two 3.5-inch hard disc drive bays and a 5.25-inch drive bay; as well as AGP and PCI slots. The entry-level model EX661L is very similar to the EZ661, but supports either Pentium 4 or Celeron CPUs, features a smaller 220-watt power supply and does not come with S-ATA connectors.
The AOpen EZ661 and EX661L both come with a one-year limited warranty and will be shipping to customers in North America by mid-September, 2004. The EZ661 has an MSRP of $250 USD and the entry-level EX661L has an MSRP of $200.
