mouse GSX-Slim desktops

While Westerners tend to think of Japan as demanding the absolute best in electronics, this is often untrue when it comes to computers, since the country's superior consoles and cellphones often reduce the need for them. What they do need is space, something provided by mouse's new GSX-Slim computers. Each system fits into a mini-tower which may actually be shorter than the accompanying monitor. The base model is the 351, which reaches the low price of just 60,690 yen ($504) by using a 2.66GHz Celeron D processor, 512MB of RAM, and an integrated graphics chip. The OS is merely Vista Home Basic.

The 551 is mostly similar to the 351, but doubles hard disk space to 160GB, boosts the CPU up to a 3GHz Pentium 4 chip, and swaps the DVD-ROM drive for a DVD combo model. The 751 is likely the most practical of the series, adding a 1.8GHz Core 2 Duo processor, as well as a Super Multi DVD drive and a copy of Vista Business. Even this system is priced at 91,140 yen ($757). The 551 is 75,390 yen ($626), and all three GSX-Slims are shipping today. [via Impress Watch]
