New PC's The Size of Soda Cans...

You read that title right... A company called Xi3 has come up with a new form factor for PC's, splitting up the traditional motherboard into three seperate components. The claim it makes for a extremely modular system, where each component is completely replaceable in case of failure. Additionally it uses 95% less electricity, clocking in at the highest consumption, of 35watts, compaired to the basic system today consuming 350watts. Also, because of its form factor and low power consumption, Xi3 claims that the computers themselves last longer. And it's modular form factor means that upgrades are a breeze, and the need to buy new computers would be obsolete. All you would need is to but a "cheaper" upgraded component to make you system faster as new technology arrives.

What do you think?

About Me

Name: Tekk Guy
Country: United States

About Me: I'm that tech guy…you know the one. When things are broken, I fix them. When they don't make sense, I explain them. When nothing is getting done, I do it. When a void occurs, I fill it. When there is silence on the call, I state the necessary. I'm that guy in IT that is relied upon by the competent as the nth tier of support, overlooked by management, and despised by the slackers. An InfoTech professional, aficionado of all things technological. I've been getting my geek on full-time since 1993, and have worked with information technology in some capacity since 1997 including VB 4-6, ASP, .Net, SQL, Java, HTML, ColdFusion, VBS, JS, Crystal Reports, COGNOS and more. I've worked on global scale environments for Fortune 500 companies and as a software engineer for local government agencies. My expertise is in Visual Basic currently in the .Net flavor, and focuses on user applications. I am also currently active in the ASP.Net programming arena, specializing in DotNetNuke Module development, site creation, and administration. Stated simply, if you need to get information from a-to-z, I'm the guy you want to see.
