    Probably a good name for it, doesn't look particularly nice though but I guess it'll have a niche

    agreed, but I side with DDY - if you're making it fanless etc it suggests you want low noise, thus a clickity clackity HDD is just annoying.

    I wonder how easy it will be to keep dust out and those ducts clear and operating efficiently?

    But cheaper than 4x SSDs of the same capacity.
    My Seagate HDD isn't exactly loud, though...

    Looks pretty easy. No air movement to draw loads of dust in to begin with. Plus you can dust it out with just a thin feather reamer or a bottle brush type thing. No more air dusting blowing all over the place!

    There's no air movement at the back of my couch/under my bed but they accumulate dust and then some. This will be no different.

    Re: Compulab Airtop2 Inferno fanless gaming PC detailed

    There's not a single mechanical drive which I'd consider quiet enough to be suitable for a silent machine, quiet yes, silent no - which is the entire point of a machine with no moving parts, surely?

    They went through all that effort to make a machine with no moving parts, and ruined it by putting mechanical HDDs in it - in the promo image of all places.

    I'm all for choice. But considering that an equivalent machine with conventional cooling - where fans as quiet as mechanical HDDs may be used, would be substantially cheaper, I would question the rationale for considering such an expensive machine if total silence isn't a priority while cheap storage is.

    A secondary mechanical HDD for bulk storage isn't terrible for a quiet PC, since windows can be set to spin them down when not in use

    When's the last time you dusted between the fins on your radiators?

    There is - Every time you move around, or open a door.

    Again, it's optional!!!

    SSDs will cost an extra $301.35, which is why it's optional.
    Same for RAM options, which range from $78 to $695!!

    I get the impression that there's been a misunderstanding.

    I'm fully aware that the mechanical hard drives are optional. Choosing a mechanical HDD, especially on the grounds of cost, is questionable as it defeats the reason for choosing this system in the first place.




    This promotional image. A unique multi-thousand dollar machine boasting no moving parts - but it's the prole-spec with mechanical hard drives in it.

    No? I know humour doesn't transmit over the internet well, and in this case it was quite thin to begin with. Whatevs...

    It's compromise.
    You can have the fancy passive cooling, but still put low Pleb/Prole spec kit in it and it'll still be quieter than fanned.

    Also, I got the price wrong - The extra for having 4x SSDs (2TB vs 2TB HDDs) come installed is actually $2,547.30!!!!!

    In fact, a maxed-spec model looks to be around Eight Grand!!!!!
    That's more than my entire wedding!!

    Something specced close to my current machine is a more reasonable $2k.
