From the original iMac to the iPhone, copycats have continuously attempted to emulate Apple's signature industrial design. The latest company to take after Apple is Everex, which has made headlines recently with its $199 gPC and $399 CloudBook.
We reported on Everex's latest effort back in February, but the firm has since given its "gPC mini" a new paint job and a new name—MyMiniPC. With the changes, the system now looks even more like Apple's Mac mini, and the bundled Linux-based gOS does little to help set them appart. A screenshot of the gOS user interface Everex proudly displays in its online store shows a shelf-like "dock" with a curved listing that looks straight out of Apple's new Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard.
Everex prices the machine at $499.99 with a one-year warranty. That price tag gets you a 1.86GHz Pentium T2130 processor, GMA950 integrated graphics, 512MB of DDR2-667 RAM, a 120GB hard drive, a DVD writer, Gigabit Ethernet, DVI and S-Video out, FireWire, and a 4-in-1 card reader. Everex claims the MyMiniPC is "exclusively created for the +100,000,000 MySpace users of the world," as well. (Thanks to Engadget for the tip.)
