New AOpen XC-Cube PCs now in SA

JOHANNESBURG (12/04/2003) - Rectron has introduced AOpen's new edge series, the XC-Cube PC, featuring the company's SilenTek technology, to SA consumers.

The XC-Cube is small -- not bigger than an ordinary toaster -- easy to assemble, easy to use, and time and space-efficient, making it an essential part of every household's media entertainment, the company says.

This first launch of the XC-Cube features two of the industry's most dominant PC platforms -- Intel Corp. and AMD Inc. "The XC-Cube is set to shake-up the SA appliance market, as it features two well-known platforms -- offered in a small but powerful packaging," says Reon Coetzee, marketing manager of Rectron.

XC Cube aims to offer Internet connectivity, "video chatting" functionality, LAN gaming and a storage center. Other key features are said to include a front USB, SPDIF Audio and IEEE1394.

AOpen's SilenTek technology is designed to ensure that the XC-Cube's fan speed is automatically monitored and adjusted by a "Noise killer" mechanism. It also reduces the power supply's loading and counters system over-heating, the company adds.

The Cube is also claimed to be compatible with standard graphics card offerings, and to offer support for CD-ROM, CD-RW, DVD-ROM or a combo drive (DVD/CDRW).

It is available in Apple White, Danube Blue, Cherry Red, Volcano Grey and Jazz Black. AOpen has also introduced same-color-design peripherals that include an LCD monitor, keyboard, mouse and speakers.
