The PC In A Can

A crazy looking new system from Abit rolls into the UK.

We’ve seen a lot of crazy-assed systems in our time, but this is our first experience with what we are going to call the CFF (Can Form Factor) PC. Goes to show, there ”are” new ideas under the sun.


The nutter behind this is Abit, which calls it the 3XS ACON Isotope PC. Under the hood you’ll find an Intel 3.2GHz processor and Abit variants of the Intel 915 chipset and ATI X700Pro 128MB graphics card. There’s also 1GB of Corsair memory, DVD-RW drive and a 250GB HDD.


Suitably, Abit has decided to celebrate the arrival of this can/bazooka/drug influenced system by holding its ACON5 LAN party from 22 to 24 April at Uttoxeter Racecourse. Warcraft III and Counter Strike 1.6 will be the weapons of choice and if you’ve expertise in this area and fancy slaughtering your contemporaries you can register for it here.

If solo gaming is more you thang, you can skip all of this and just head on over to those friendly online fellows Scan where you’ll be able reward your considerable open mindedness with this eccentric piece of kit for £927.08 including VAT.
