HP Proliant MicroServer

The MicroServer is a unique SFF server in the HP Proliant line that looks more like a small PC or multi-HDD NAS box. Powered not by Atom but a more powerful dual-core, 12W TDP AMD Athlon II, it is the smallest server we've ever seen. We gave our sample the complete SPCR treatment.

Serenity i7 Sandy Bridge PC, SPCR Edition, by Puget Computers

Time flies in the tech world. Blink, turn your head for a moment, and today's greatest technology is yesterday's news. So it is with the Serenity PC, SPCR Edition. The previous edition turned out to be the quietest computer system we have ever reviewed or even laid our hands on, and probably quieter than any PC will ever be, short of one with no moving parts and zero electronic noise. Another 3.5 months later, the latest SPCR Edition of the Puget Serenity with Sandy Bridge is here.

Puget Serenity, SPCR Edition v.2

In the few months after the Serenity was SPCR-certified as a silent PC, Puget went back to the drawing board to make the i7 PC even quieter. The development team made changes to fans, subtle improvements to the chassis, a series of small upgrades in other components, and perhaps most importantly, resorted to binning (like the big boys) to cherry-pick only the quietest components off their shelf for the SPCR edition. This second sample that we just finished testing is nothing short of marvelous.

Samsung N220 Pine Trail Netbook

The Samsung N220 has many of the usual trappings of a 10.1" netbook including a low resolution screen, a small keyboard, and just 1GB of RAM. However, with Pine Trail at its heart and a hefty 5900mAh battery, it has the potential to be a very cool, quiet, and long-lasting travel companion.
