AOpen is preparing for the March launch of its smallest XC Cube SFF PC to
date, the MZ 855. The Intel 855GME-based system dubbed the Cube Mini, will only
be 106mm tall and will support Socket 479 Pentium M processors, a 400MHz FSB and
up to 2GB of DDR333 memory. Although running a notebook CPU, the MZ 855 will
still support desktop hard drives, and features two front-panel USB ports.
However, with a 150W power supply and support for graphics cards only up to
185mm in length, the MZ 855 is not targeted for all enthusiasts, but rather to
those who value space-saving above all else. Although AOpen plans a global
release for the MZ855, the first target market will be Japan. By the middle of
the second quarter, the company will also release a version of the Cube Mini
based on the Intel 915GM chipset.
