Ripple Mini Chocolate is Atom-based, Mac Mini-like
If not for that dreadful, two-inch tall logo etched into the front, doing its damnedest to fontographically evoke the logo font of the Apple IIe, the Ripple .mini Chocolate would be a rather attractive solution for light weight computer tasks.
The Korean company has basically taken the look of the Mac Mini and slapped a low-wat 1.6Ghz Atom CPU inside, along with 2GB of DDR2 RAM and a slot-loading optical drive. There's only ethernet, no wifi, but the power supply only chews up 60 watts, but at a price of only $200, it's not a bad deal for an always-on media server or the like.
But yeesh. That Ripple on the front. I sort of admire the incompetent cleverness of the attempt, but this would be a far more plausible Mac Mini knock-off if they hadn't tried to channel a twenty year old Apple logo. Of course, covering it up is a simple matter: that's what the stickers of Porter Joel hands out to all of his friends are for.
