There aren’t many power users in the PC (as in, Window’s based PCs) community who will admit to wanting a Mac, but there are those who secretly love the look of Apple’s Mac Mini. If this sounds like you, then you might be a prime candidate for Ripple Look’s new HTPC, which looks a lot like that other kind of personal computer.
From what we can gather, the Ripple Look boasts an Intel Atom 230 processor, a 2.5-inch 160GB hard drive, integrated Intel GMA X4500 graphics with HD video support and DX10, four USB 2.0 ports, a LAN port, audio inputs, printer port, serial port, and VGA port. Missing, however, is HDMI and Wi-Fi connectivity.
There are a couple of different ways you can situate the Ripple Look in your living room. Rubber pads on the bottom prevent vibration if you opt to toss the unit into your home theater rack, or you can remove the bottom plate to reveal VESA mount holes for attaching it to the back of your LCD TV or monitor.
