The old adage “They don’t make ‘em like they used to” looks to become somewhat redundant thanks to Cybernet's all-in-one PC, the ZPC-9000.
Somewhat reminiscent of the Amiga and Atari computers of yesteryear, the ZPC-9000 is basically a complete PC system built into a keyboard. The only external device is the monitor.
This is not a new concept, but it's specification certainly overshadows that of its ancestry. The system features an Intel Pentium 4 3.2GHz 800FSB processor, 2GB 400MHz DDR, Intel Extreme integrated graphics, built-in speakers, built-in two button touch-pad with scroll, gigabit Ethernet, 4 x USB 2.0, 2 x serial, parallel, PS/2, DVI and S-Video ports. Options include removable 2.5” HDD, DVD+/-RW, built-in 7-in-1 card reader plus modem. The system is also remarkably quiet in operation.
The ZPC-9000 is primarily intended for use in hospitals, point of sale, education, financial and factory floor applications. Whilst it may not a state of the art gaming monster, it is certainly powerful enough to cope with most daily computing tasks and would make a good home office or bedroom computer where space is limited or the system needs to be moved regularly.
