AOpen Showcases Mac Mini Clone


AOpen introduced a Pentium M-based mini PC, codenamed Pandora, at Computex 2005, with the small-form-factor (SFF) PC matching the Apple Mac mini in size, performance and price.

The compact-sized Barebone is based on the Intel 915GM (Alviso) platform. AOpen scored desktop power in a small case by endowing it with the Pentium M processor running at 1.3GHz or 1.6GHz normally found in notebooks (less power consumption, less fans, less bulk). The Pentium M CPU is supported by the mobile 915GM chipset with integrated GMA 900 graphics. The new device is currently showcased at Computex 2005, Taipei.



Aopen's mini PC offers a built-in DVD-RW and 2.5-inch hard drive. The product is built with mini-PCI 804.11 a/b/g wireless communication module and Bluetooth support. It can also transfer data wirelessly to and from personal computing and communication devices such as PDA and smart phone.

The Mini PC also provides DVI, S-Video, and YPbPr connectors so that it can be connected to HDTV, plasma display monitor, large screen display panels, and high definition audio products. A user can turn the Mini PC into the control hub of a digital home entertainment center.

The smooth and stylish design of the device along with its small size resembles Apple's Mac Mini. The rear panel of the device looks quite simple and the I/O ports are limited to the USB interface, the Ethernet port, the audio output and DVI, S-Video, and YPbPr connectors. On the front panel you can see a slot-in input for optical media as well as the power button.

With a target price of US$499-699 for entry-level models, the system is expected to be the most competitive Pentium M desktop solution on the market. Availability in the market is scheduled for the third quarter of 2005, possibly in various color variations.
