The AOpen Mini PC made its debut at this week’s Computex in Taiwan, and though there were many smaller internet-only PCs at the trade fair, it’s the smallest unit to include an optical drive.

Styled almost exactly like Apple’s device, the Mini PC features a Pentium M processor, DVD-RW, and a 2.5 inch drive. It also includes a wireless 802.11g adaptor, and at 150 x 150 x 50 mm it is also smaller than the Mac Mini.

AOpen have also included a TV-out, including S-Video and component connections, meaning the unit could also form part of a home theatre system. Pricing and availability has yet to be announced.

But the smallest PC at Computex went to FIC’s iPC featuring AMD’s Geode processor. At 120 x 135 x 35mm it’s no bigger than a paperback, and includes an onboard Li-Ion battery – making it portable.
