Ripple Mini PC takes one off Mac Mini

Same look, just different color and comes with an Intel Atom CPU — the Ripple Mini PC is one of those new small form-factor desktop PCs wanting to grab a piece of the waning Mac Mini market. Still, they’ve shown you can make good use of an Intel Atom CPU beyond the UMPC niche.

This is actually the second of a series from South Korea-based MyRipple, named Ripple Mini Chocolate. The price — an estimated Php8,972 (209,000 South Korean won).

Powered by a 1.6GHz Atom CPU, maxes out the RAM at 2GB {via}. There’s a slot-loading optical drive too.

Not sure what kind of hard drive goes in there but I guess the 2.5″ type will fit just fine inside the 15x210x80mm body. No wireless connection for this one, just gigabit ethernet. But that doesn’t prevent you from hooking it up with a USB WiFi dongle.
