Sapphire Smallest PC

Building on the success of its first Mini PC, hailed as the smallest PC in the world, SAPPHIRE Technology – the world leading manufacturer and supplier of PC graphics cards and mainboards has just introduced a new model – the SAPPHIRE EDGE-HD2. 

The SAPPHIRE EDGE-HD2 shares the same slim, stylish outline as the earlier model but delivers slightly higher performance and is now also available with a pre-loaded operating system. At less than half a litre in volume, it is slimmer and smaller than most wireless access points – in fact around the size of a paperback book! Its stylish design and simple pedestal mount make it equally at home next to a TV or business monitor whilst occupying the minimum of desk or shelf space. 

Responding to customer demand, the new SAPPHIRE EDGE-HD2 is available optionally pre-loaded with Windows 7 Ultimate Edition, and this version is available with a VESA compatible mount to allow it to be unobtrusively fitted behind a monitor or TV. 

Despite its small size, the SAPPHIRE EDGE-HD2 is a fully featured PC for home, education or business use. Specifications include a second generation 1.8GHz dual core processor, 2GB of DDR3 memory, a 320GB hard drive and built in wireless connectivity as well as high speed LAN port and four USB ports. It provides high resolution graphics output with a full HD (1920x1080) HDMI interface (with an HDMI cable and HDMI-DVI adapter also supplied) as well as a VGA monitor output and it has built-in audio with mic-in and line-out sockets. All of this makes it more than capable of handling day to day Office tasks as well as streaming video or browsing the Internet. 

The SAPPHIRE Mini PC family is a top scorer in power efficiency. Consuming less than 30W even under load, the members of the SAPPHIRE Mini PC family use around 10 times less power than a typical desktop PC – and less than most notebooks – making it one of the Greenest PC solutions available. Power and space savings alone can justify switching to the Mini PC for many businesses*. 

The SAPPHIRE EDGE-HD2 Mini PC is ideal for integration into an office or education environment. The end user or system integrator has a free choice of keyboard or mouse, which can be either wireless or USB connected. 

The new SAPPHIRE EDGE-HD2 is optionally supplied pre-installed with Windows 7 Ultimate edition, or pre-loaded with FREE DOS, ready for the reseller or end user to install the preferred choice of operating system. All appropriate drivers are supplied on CD.

*Appendix – power savings estimate  

At current power costs, investment in Mini PC for full-time business can be recovered in one year approx by energy savings alone. 

Power @ 15 Euro cents / KWh (source http://www.biomassenergycentre.org.uk

Cost to power regular PC = 300W x 24 h = 7.2 KWh /day = 1.08 Euros /day = 394 Euros / year ! 

Cost to power Mini PC = 27W x 24 h = 0.65 KWh /day = 9.75 c /day = 35.5 Euros / year 

Saving over 300 Euros / year ! 

Plus further savings in cost of office real estate, air conditioning, etc.
