Everex Launches New MyMiniPC, Mac Mini Lookalike

Over the last year, there has been an influx of ultra small form factor PCs, from companies like Asus and Acer.  But Everex has also gotten in on some of the action and have just unveiled yet another new mini-PC at their on-line store.

In the post, Everex says the new MyMiniPC, as it is called, is exclusively created for the +100,000,000 MySpace users of the world.  But the system is essentially a standard, albeit tiny, PC with a custom Linux-based operating system with a few MySpace related applications integrated.  According to Everex, the MyMiniPC is "...what happens when you combine an award winning design* with the power of Open Source.  The limited edition gPC mini (MyMiniPC) provides MySpace users with a customized platform to easily collaborate, modify and update webpages on the world's most popular social networking site.

With enhanced graphics, animations and a new icon dock, which aggregates the latest MySpace and Web 2.0 entertainment media sites, users can surf, email, blog, IM, Skype, rip and compute, all with the power of an Intel® Pentium® Dual-Core processor and the gOS Space 2.9 operating system."

The MyMiniPC's hardware specifications include a 1.86GHz Intel Pentium Dual-Core T2130 (1MB L2 Cache, 1.86GHz, 533MHz FSB), 120GB Hard Disk Drive, 512MB DDR2 667 SDRAM, DVD+/-RW, Intel Graphics Media Accelerator GMA950 video, and Realtek ALC268 High-Definition Audio.  I/O connectivity includes 1 x 10/100/1000 Ethernet Port, 1 x DVI-I Port,  1 x S-Video Port, 1 x IEEE 1394 Port,  4 x USB 2.0 Ports, 1 x 2-in1 Media Card Reader, 1 x Headphone / Line-Out Port, and 2 x Microphone / Line-In Ports.

In addition to the MySpace related applications, the MyMiniPC's pre-installed software compliment is comprised of Mozilla Firefox, gMail, Meebo, Skype, Wikipedia, GIMP, Blogger, YouTube, Xing Movie Player, RythemBox and OpenOffice.org 2.3 (which includes WRITER, IMPRESS, DRAW, CALC, BASE).

$499.99 will buy the system with 1-Year limited warranty and toll-free, 24/7 technical support.  That's quite a bit more affordable than Apple's Mac Mini, which this machine obviously emulates.

A Linux?  Is there any reason it would not be possible to install your own copy of Windows XP?

There's no reason you couldn't install XP on it. Not sure what the RAM configuration is, or if it can be expanded, but it should run XP OK.

I really like this system but i wonder if its easy to open up and add RAM, or if the CPU is soldered onto the motherboard or if you could drop in a T7xxx or a T9xxx CPU to upgrade it. If the price drops in half it would make a nice media extender type machine as it does have DVI and S-Video. also I noticed the screws on the rear in the pic above wonder if thats all you need to open it up..
