Here is a quick recap of the top stories that made headlines this week in the Mini-ITX world.
- HP has unveiled a new line of workstations, including a Mini-ITX tower. The new HP Small Form Factor PC, dubbed Z230 SFF, is 57% smaller compared to its ‘bigger’ cousin, and comes in a wide-range of tech specs. Details of release date have not been announced yet.
- V3 released its latest gaming rig – the V3 Gaming Devastator. As the name suggests, this small form-factor PC is aimed squarely at the gamers. Its draw-card – a 4th Gen Intel Core i5 processor and two Nvidia GeForce GTX 770 graphic cards. Its price – just over $2,400.
- And finally, to our feel-good story for the week. Geekroo, the Aussie Raspberry Pi fanatics, have reached their goal on Kickstarter to develop a Mini-ITX board that can house the RPi. Dubbed the “Fairywren”, the board is equipped with 4 USB ports, 24-pin ATX PSU, 2.5 inch HDD bay, a serial port, IR module and a GPIO breakout. You can see the Kickstarter project page here.
