Logic Supply LGX ML300 Fanless NUC

A slim, silent, fanless case for an Intel NUC with room enough for a 2.5" drive is Logic Supply's latest passively cooled project. With the right NUC innards, it becomes a perfect ultra-mini media PC with both zippy performance and enough storage space.

Mobile Convergence: Windows 8 Convertibles Samsung ATIV 500T, MS Surface Pro

Windows 8 is making possible a new class of mobile convertibles that flip between tablet and notebook. The Samsung ATIC Smart PC 500T is one example, based around a new Atom core and built around a big (for tablets) 11.6" screen, but there's an Ivy Bridge upgrade available in the 700T. Meanwhile, Microsoft's Surface Pro shows us a different vision of the convertible.

Certified Silent Puget Serenity Pro

The latest Certifiably Silent PC from Puget Computers features an Ivy Bridge i7-3770K and an nVidia GTX670 gaming card. The SPCR Silent Certification should be a clear hint: There's not much of a price in noise for this high performance gamer.

Intel Next Unit of Computing Kit DC3217BY

Chip giant Intel's less-is-more NUC is a cute half-liter box of high efficiency computing goodness that packs in the latest Core processor technology, HD Graphics 4000, mSATA and ThunderBolt. And it is quiet!

Giada A51 Mini PC

Inside the Giada A51's sleek one-inch thick profile is an AMD G-T56N Brazos APU system with a nice set of connectivity options. Though not particularly quiet, its dimensions make it a compelling option for users with less demanding needs.

Lenovo ThinkCentre M92z All-In-One Desktop PC

The functionally styled Lenovo ThinCentre M92z is a very capable all-in-one desktop PC with a quad core Ivy Bridge processor, Dolby speakers, a fully adjustable stand, and a 23" 1080p IPS screen. The display is also touch-capable but it frankly doesn't add a lot to the experience, though perhaps an upgrade to Windows 8 could change this.

AVADirect Quiet Gaming PC with GTX680

The second SPCR Quiet Certified PC from AVADirect Custom Computers is a powerful rig features an ASUS DirectCU GTX680 graphics card and an Ivy Bridge i7-3770k. Just 16 dBA @ 1m doing ordinary tasks, and 26 dBA at full GPU/CPU load even in a hot 30°C ambient.

AVADirect Quiet Gaming PC

The first SPCR Quiet Certified PC from AVADirect Custom Computers features a GTX560 Ti graphics card along with an Ivy Bridge i7-3770k CPU in a system that's quiet doing ordinary tasks and ramps up only moderately at full GPU/CPU load.

Jetway AMD G-T40E Fanless Barebones Nettop

Jetway's new barebones PC powered by AMD's dual core G-T40E APU is really tiny, fanless, and surprisingly affordable. It runs a bit hot and needs more driver development, though.

Lenovo ThinkCentre M91p Ultra-small Desktop PC

The USFF version of Lenovo's ThinkCentre M91p packs a significant punch in a small package. Utilizing an Intel "S" low power processor and a 150W external AC power adapter, it's also incredibly energy efficient.

Logic Supply LGX AG150 Fanless Mini PC

This new PC from specialist Logic Systems is based around the recently released Intel DN2800MT "Marshalltown" mini-ITX Atom board, a long-awaited follow-up to the original "Thin ITX" board, the Intel D945GSEJT. Super low energy consumption, 1080P video capability and a tiny 1.2 liter form factor should be compelling for Mini PC enthusiasts.

Sapphire Edge HD3: AMD E-450 Mini PC

Only in the third iteration of Sapphire's Edge HD mini PC was AMD hardware incorporated into the design, unusual for a company that features AMD (ATI) GPU video cards exclusively. The HD3 sports an AMD E-450 APU, 4GB of RAM, a 320GB hard drive, front-mounted USB 3.0, and wireless connectivity all in a svelte package less than an inch thick.

Viako Mini Letter ML-80 H61 Sandy Bridge Barebones PC

The Mini Letter ML-80 is a slightly larger mini-ITX case than the previous Viako model we reviewed, and the H61 variant integrates a more powerful Sandy Bridge board, with the same front display, remote, and software.

Serenity Mini, SPCR Edition by Puget Computers

Serenity Mini is the moniker of a Puget computer that is 25% smaller than the Serenity, SPCR Edition v.3. Does the Mini, SPCR Edition, match the ultra-low noise and superb performance of its larger predecessor... even when its i5 Sandy Bridge CPU is overclock-preset to 4.0GHz?

Samsung Series 9 Ultra Portable Notebook

The Samsung Series 9 ultra portable notebook has a 13.3" matte screen, 17W Core i5 processor, solid state drive, and a sleek 3 lb, 16 mm thick frame wrapped in a sexy black duralumin shell. It might just be the Macbook Air alternative you've been waiting for.
