There’s a new player in the mini-desktop computer space. CyberPowerPC’s new Fang Mini PC is a full-fledged desktop in a 4.5″ x 4.3″ x 2.4″ box.
It joins the Intel NUC and Gigabyte BRIX in this space, but while those devices are usually sold as barebones systems, the Fang Mini PC comes with storage, memory, and Windows 8.1 software… it also costs a lot more.
Prices start at $799.
That price gets you a Fang Mini R9 model with an AMD A8 quad-core processor, Radeon R9 graphics, 8GB of RAM, a 1TB hard drive, and Windows 8.1. You can save a few bucks by choosing a smaller hard drive.
For $889 and up you can also opt for a Fang Mini Pro system with an Intel Core i7 Haswell CPU, Iris Pro 5200 graphics, and the same 8GB of RAM, 1TB of storage, and Windows 8.1 software.
Other features include 802.11ac WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, Ethernet, HDMI, mini DisplayPort, and 4 USB ports.
While the systems are more expensive than many other devices in this category, they’re also more powerful than most, and CyberPowerPC offers a range of accessories configuration options. There’s an mSATA port that can handle an SSD, and the computers support up to 16GB of RAM.
