Taipei, Taiwan, 17 December 2003 Ė First International Computer, Inc (FIC), a world leader in the design and production of motherboards, graphic cards, PC systems, notebooks, mobile solutions, and servers, proudly announces the newest addition to our innovative line of products Ė the small form factor Condor Cube. The Condor is definitely a gamerís PC, offering both power and performance in a compact, portable design unlike any other!

"In 2002, FIC was one of the first to bring a compact cube system to the market," says Ernest Chen, President, Advanced Platform Group, First International Computer, Inc. "The Condor Cube is sure to be as extremely successful as that first system. It has a sleek, contemporary design that looks great in any environment. While its one-touch, easy opening chassis and screw-less design make upgrades, maintenance and integration effortless. In fact, it is one of the easiest SFF systems to upgrade and maintain available on the market."

Nothing about this system will get in the way of pure gaming performance and excitement. The Condor uses an extremely stable and powerful Intel P4 865G platform, and features high-end graphics, with additional support for an AGP 8X graphic card using 1 AGP expansion slot. This system has everything the serious gamer needs, from easy integration to ultimate connectivity. Plus, its ingenious acoustic and thermal design makes it ultra quiet, producing less than 24 db of noise, so gamers will relish in the 5.1 channel audio from their games and not the hum of a loud CPU cooler.

The Condor Cube is also easy to use, maintain and upgrade. All of the Condorís drives, as well as the front I/O, are quickly accessible behind integrated front bay doors. Plus, with just a push of the chassis lock button the contemporary chassis of the Condor swings open on its hinges, providing access to the DVD player, audio system, FDD, and HDD. Both the FDD and HDD are tool-free, allowing the system to be maintained without the need of a screwdriver. If greater access is needed, the Condorís chassis hinges can actually be physically disconnected, allowing half of the chassis to be pulled away for effortless access to key components. The Condor is the easiest and quickest SFF to configure and upgrade ever developed!

Want to attend a LAN party? The Condor offers just as much performance as a desktop, but is compact enough to be portable, and has even more connectivity! Just pick it up and youíre on your way. Try doing that with a standard desktop PC.
