AOpen's Pandora Box going retail

The AOpen Pandora may look like the Mac Mini, but it certainly is not. With complete system prices at $399 for Linux and $499 for Windows the Pandora is worth a look.

The Pandora case is simplistic with nothing more than a slot-loading optical drive and a power button in the front. The silver case and overall design looks nearly identical to the Mac Mini, which is pictured above. On the rear of the Pandora one will find three USB 2.0 ports, a keyboard hookup and a serial port in the back. The Pandora also has features a wireless networking card to help reduce wires. The guts of the Pandora have not being talked about, but we are working hard to figure out what they may be. For comparison the entry level Mac Mini currently ships with a 1.25GHz PowerPC G4 processor, 256MB of RAM, 40GB hard drive and an ATI Radeon 9200 graphics with 32MB of dedicated DDR memory.
