Everex gPC mini Hands On: Look Out Mac Mini? [PCs]

Everex_gPC_Mini_md.jpgThe folks at Wired recently got their hands on Everex's new gPC mini Linux based PC, and initial impressions indicate that it is a good value based on specs, but they note that gOS Linux is still not ready for prime time as a viable Windows alternative. That having been said, outside of some problems picking up monitor resolution and the notable lack of Wi-Fi, the gPC mini "worked fine."

Like it's big brother, Wired noted that the mini gPC has potential with the budget and Linux guru crowd—but until the final verdicts are in I wouldn't go rushing out to drop $499 on one. And I definitely wouldn't go comparing it to the Mac Mini. Other than aesthetics, these two devices have little in common. [Wired]
