“The Fang Mini is no toy, but a fully functional PC,” CyberPowerPC says
Boutique system builder CyberPowerPC today stuck out its Fang Mini series of NUC-like PCs. These compact systems measure a scant 4.5 inches by 4.3 inches by 2.4 inches — small enough to fit in your hand but with enough venom to strike down not only daily computing chores, but also a bit of 3D gaming and 4K video watching, CyberPowerPC says. And unlike the NUC, you can configure a Fang Mini PC with AMD inside.
There are two models available. The first is the Fang Mini R9 with an AMD A8-5557M quad-core APU inside. It also sports AMD Radeon R9 M275X graphics, 8GB of DDR3 memory, 1TB hard drive (7200 RPM), 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, HDMI and DisplayPort output, GbE LAN, four USB 3.0 ports, 3.5mm headphone jack with SPDIF support, and Windows 8.1. It’s available now for $799.
The second model is the Fang Mini Pro with an Intel Core i7 4770R quad-core processor tucked inside. It uses Intel Iris Pro Graphics 5200, but is otherwise identical to the Mini R9. This one is also available now and goes for $889.
“The Fang Mini is no toy, but a fully-functional PC with plenty of ports to support all of your devices in a footprint that’s smaller than the power supply of a traditional desktop system,” CyberPower PC says.
These systems are also somewhat customizable — you can opt for more RAM and choose from a variety of storage options, along with a few other tweaks.
