Well I called it a Mini 2...

But it's a real name is Dell Optiplex 160.

Interesting look. Much like those Lintops...

Dell's going to release this unit in early 2009

Atom processor...

Do Dell know something about the new Mini, we don't...?

I'm interested in seeing if Dell will also release one with the nVidia 9400 chipset and GPU later on. Also, if Apple would make an Atom powered Mac I would probably stay away from it personally since the Atom doesn't seem like it should go into an Apple.

I not sure that the nVidia 9400 chipset is an option for the Atom. nVidia is releasing another chipset with integrated graphics for Atom, the ion.

The beauty of the mini is its small and its a half decent computer (and if it were to get a couple of tweaks, say FSB1066 CPUs and 9400 chipset it would be a very decent computer). This uses the atom so its not a decent desktop computer. Its an eeebox thingy.

I like the option to go vertical in a finished manner. It would be cool in the new Mac minis offered the same.

The Ion is a combination of the Atom CPU and the nVidia 9400 chipset. It's definitely an option.

I'm not sure what the purpose of this computer is supposed to be? It's ugly as sin and wimpy as hell compared to the Dell Hybrid. And, its huge compared to the Ion boxes that nVidia is showing off.

Embarassed I guess, I should have read further down in the ion articles.

I don't think Dell really gets this sort of stuff. The hybrid isn't small, at least not when compared to a mini.
