Part of the vendor’s LifeStyle series, the Minuet slimline PC desktop is aimed at users in the build-your-own market with an emphasis on style and making the most of limited space. Measuring 42.7cm x 32.4cm x 9.7cm, this new mini-case can also be configured as an ultra-slim tower when used with a stand. Available in black with a chrome front panel, it features front audio jacks, front-mounted USB and FireWire ports as well as internal drive bays with rubber grommets to absorb hard drive vibrations for quiet computing. It also comes with a micro version of the vendor’s SmartPower power supply, which is compliant with AMD- or Intel-based systems. The Antec Minuet is available through Altech.
