AOpen Mini PC MP945-VX Ultra Small Formfactor PC Review

 

AOpen has employed an unorthodox method of building its super small, super compact, super quiet miniPC MP945-VX small formfactor system.

Workstation performance of the system is good although WindowsXP Media Center might not be the best OS to use. WindowsXP doesn't have as many media-friendly utilities, but it seems to handle applications like Sysmark better. Still, the AOpen Mini PC...

If you want to see my YouTube videos of how their DVD and onboard video is defective, here is the proof:

Do not buy this unit or any unit from AOpen. I was an early adopter and am still paying the price for being a good customer. There were problems with the TurboRAM, the cooling, the DVD playback and oboard graphics card

When I proved to Aopen that their DVD playback was defective, they shirked responsibility and asked me to pay another $90 plus shipping. So all in they want me to pay $180 for their defective product

If it wasn't because Apple already had their Mac Mini on the market I would seriously consider this product.

Small size, low noise, clean design, dual core

Limited connectivity, buying experience, overall quality, not supporting Mac OS (you have to live with all the viruses, crashes, installation problems etc. you get with Windows)

Being a Manager of a large Educational district in North America, we were very interested in the concept of a Mini PC. We were allowed to see the prototype and made comments regarding the USB ports, the location of all ports and the lack of a secure...

More desk space, less heat, less noise

No front ports, not enough USB, to easy to steal

If your going to copy something, at least make it better. This will be another in a long line of clones that crash and burn. Be innovative and be proud at the end of the day will ya!?

Can be confused with a Mac Mini

People will eventually find out

Product Specifications

With a supermini size the Mini PC Duo creates extraordinary desktop space for you to extend unlimited creativity. Using AOpen MiniPC saves you over 40% of space compared to a traditional desktop PC. The saved space can be even larger when fitted with an LCD monitor. The ergonomic effects brought to you by the MiniPC will effectively boost your work efficiency and help maintain a pleasant mood. Made entirely of aluminum alloy, AOpen MiniPC fully reflects the avantgarde design. The teams of professional industrial designers at AOpen achieved the multipurpose goals of lowering the weight, strengthening the product, and accelerating heat dissipation while retaining the simple no-frills look. The AOpen MiniPC Duo is designed for high mobility. The product fully meets the demands of computer users, who mostly need to carry the computer in a briefcase or handbag from one place to another to continue their work rather than using PCs in the transit process. AOpen designs its MiniPC for point-to-point mobility and leaves out monitor, keyboard, and mouse. It further omits the weighty battery so that the MiniPC is lighter than even the lightest notebook PCs available on the market. Despite its light weight, the computer's functions are not compromised at all. Such brand new "portable desktop PC" concept more conforms to consumers' needs. The AOpen MiniPC brings forth a new era for desktop PCs with unrivaled silence, power conservation, and excellent performance by adopting Intel processors with mobility technology coupled with a So-DIMM memory slot and Mini-PCI interface. The AOpen MiniPC can easily satisfy the majority of users who mainly work with office applications, enabling them to easily handle office work, entertainment, Internet surfing, CD/DVD burning, etc.
