Third Wave’s Mini Killer (?)

The “Prime Super Mini”, from Japanese company Third Wave is not the first contender to Apple’s Mac Mini. But I kind of like the way it looks. It has a slightly larger footprint than the Mini, at 17.2 x 22.6cm, where the Mini is 16.5 x 16.5cm, but it is slimmer, at 4.2cm, rather than 5.1cm.

Under the hood, you got a:

1.66GHz Intel Core Duo T2600 processor, Intel 945GM chipset, 80GB Serial ATA hard disk, 512MB of memory, Firewire 400, four USB 2.0 ports, Gigabit Ethernet and 802.11a/b/g Wi-Fi. It also has DVI-I and S-video ports, but there’s no Bluetooth, unlike the Mini. There’s even a slot-loading multi-format optical drive

It’s coming out May 12th, though it’s likely to be Japan only. And, sadly, at ?122,580 ($1,043/?584/?845), it’s not even close to being as cheap as the Mini.
