Keyboard PC design recalls Amiga era

All-in-one

Application security programs and practises

Fashion often repeats itself, with dated products reborn into popular products. Just think of VolksWagen’s Beetle or BMW's Mini. And now we can add the Commodore Amiga to the list, sort of, thanks to a new all-in-one PC with a look rather reminiscent of the home computer.

Cybernet's Zero-footprint PC (ZPC), as it's curiously called since it has a non-zero footprint, integrates a standard PC's internals under the keyboard. There's room in there for up to 750GB of hard drive storage, 4GB of 667MHz DDR 2 memory, an optical drive and an Intel Core 2 Quad processor.

A DVD burner's built into the side

The optical drive sits in the side, just like the floppy drive did in the Commodore machine. If you’d rather surf the web than watch films though, then an extra $100 (£50/€65) gets you internal 802.11g Wi-Fi. An Ethernet port comes as standard

Many, many ports

Four USB ports come as standard too, and although slots for memory cards aren’t stated as an option, pictures of the PC do show several built into the front of the unit. You can also see serial and parallel ports, long with VGA and DVI for monitor connections.

Another picture also shows a swipe reader for credit cards added onto the PC, which is sure to come in handy for a bit of cyber-squandering.

The ZPC is available now from online retailer Cybernet, with prices starting at around $630 (£315/€350).
