Stylish compact Tranquil PC

click to enlarge imageThe Tranquil PC is a "compact, stylish PC system for the discerning user" based around a VIA EPIA M10000 with Nehemiah core 1GHz CPU. The basic system features integrated fanless cooling along with a quiet hard drive and slim-line optical drive for very quiet operation. This Brit system certainly is a looker, done up in extruded aluminum panels and an acrylic blue-glow front panel. Comes in different color combinations, of course. Very nice for a complete PC that starts at just £399.00.

Yes, it does draw comparison to the Hush PC, in the same way that certain BMWs evoke certain Mercedes: These machines bring a lot of panache to the Small Form Factor (a term which has always sounded so pedestrian). Check out Tranquil PC's web site for more details on this sexy wee beast.
