A barebones that isn't a box

Chassis manufacturer ENlight has come up with a barebones offering that is out of the ordinary for us PC boys, but iMac users may find it strangely familiar.

In essence, you build your PC into a 19inch TFT display which has a resolution of 1,280 x 1,024, contrast ratio of 500:1 and brightness of 270cd/m2. Your micro-ATX motherboard sits behind the screen with support for an LGA775 Pentium 4 up to 3GHz in speed.

There's no news on the chipset, but the expansion slots are 1x AGP and 3x PCI so it's not going to be one for the gamers.

In the event that you attempt to crowbar in a GeForce 6800GT, you may find the 220W Flex ATX power supply in the base puts the kibosh on your efforts.

On the other hand, if you use the integrated graphics and are content with a Celeron that has a nice quiet fan, then you'll find that the ambient noise level of 35dB should make it ideal for office use.

The ENlight's two UK distributors, Enta and Target, were unable to give pricing information, which suggests the LP791 is likely to be used by OEM PC builders. ®
