Mini PC at Computex

PC maker AOpen insists its "Mini PC," jointly demonstrated at Computex 2005 this week with Intel, is . It's powered by a Pentium M processor running alongside Intel's 915GM chipset. The Mini PC incorporates Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, both optional on the Mac Mini. The dimensions may of both machines are very close (16.5 x 16.5 x 5cm for the Mac Mini and 15 x 15 x 5cm for the Mini PC). The Register observes that the Mini PC "sports an unappealing on/off button on its front."

    Oh, please.

    It is only an almost identical (yet, uglier) version of the mini. Why would you stick a giant round button on the face of the computer like that?

    and yet...

    Mac users complain that the on/off button on the mini is in the hard-to-reach back of the box.

    Can't win either way...At least its placed in a symetrical place on the front, not just off to the corner.

    now we know...

    Well, now we know why Apple doesn't place the power buttons on the front face of the iMac and Mac mini. It does look pretty distracting.

    Power button

    I rarely use the power button on my Powerbook, or my iMac. When I do use it, it is to put the Mac to sleep.
