eMachines Mini-e: a Wee PC for Less Than Half the Price of a Mac Mini

advertisement

Apple's Mac Mini is popular as a home theater PC, but its starting price of $700 makes it far too expensive for someone looking for a casual upgrade. Luckily, other manufacturers realize that the small form factor is a big selling point and are rolling out some competing models.

eMachines' Mini-e is a tiny computer, measuring 7.1 inches across and 1.2 inches deep. Inside is a 1.7GHz AMD Athlon II Neo, 2GB of RAM, a 160GB hard drive and a GeForce 9200 video card, all running Windows 7 Home Premium. Hook it up to your HDTV via HDMI, and you've got a perfectly capable little home theater PC. And the price? A mere $300, less than half of the base price of the Mac Mini.
