Notebook without a screen
Why still buy a huge PC when a small one will do the job as well? Ttec sent us the compact Transtec Senyo 600W: a tiny computer that is very suitable for home use, but can also be used in an office environment.
The Senyo measures only 17,2 x 22x,5 x 4,2 centimeters. Quite small when you keep in mind that the device contains a 60 GB hard disk drive, a Matshita UJ-845S DVD-writer, a WLAN-adaptor and a gigabit network adaptor. Further specifications consist of: a Celeron M 340 processor, 512 MB memory, the Intel 945 GM chipset, a cardreader and a TV-out connector. These specifications clearly point out that Ttec used notebook technique to build the Senyo.
FIC, the company that manufactures this barebone, simply built a compact computer without adding a screen. And, to be honest, there's nothing wrong with that. The Senyo 600W is quite a nice mini PC, that fits just fine on a desktop or may function just as properly as a living room system. Because of the digital output connector (which allows direct connection to a stereo set) the machine even runs well on the multimedia side. Admittedly, the 945GM graphical performance won't allow you to play the latest 3D games on the Senyo, but for basic PC use this is an adequate solution.
The components are reasonably OK, we found a Hitachi 5K100 hard disk, a Matshita UJ-845S Slot-in DVD-writer, the well-known Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG WLAN-adaptor as well as the Intel gigabit chip. Optionally the Senyo 600W can be extended with a Bluetooth-adaptor.
It may be obvious the Senyo 600W is not intended for power users, but for users with lesser demands Ttec delivers a reasonably fine barebone.

The Transtec Senyo 600W is a nice machine for a a fair price. Off course for this price you can put together a much more powerful PC, but will never be as small as this one.
