Remember those next-gen Gigabyte Brix small-form-factor barebone PCs we told you about last month? Well, they're now available.
Newegg has three models listed: the GB-BXi3-4010 for $299.99, the GB-BXi5-4200 for $389.99, and the GB-BXi7-4500 for $529.99. As far as I can tell, these are all identical except for the processors under the hood: Intel's Core i3-4010U, Core i5-4200U, and Core i7-4500U, respectively. All three chips are 15W parts with Intel integrated graphics. The i3-4010U has HD Graphics 4000, while the other two have HD Graphics 4400.
Processor differences aside, the Brix systems all measure 4.2" x 4.5" x 1.2". They also come with VESA mounting brackets, so you can strap 'em to the back of an LCD monitor. Inside are two SO-DIMM slots, one mSATA slot, and one mini-PCIe slot, which you're supposed to populate with your choice of memory, solid-state storage, and wireless networking adapter. External connectivity includes HDMI, Mini DisplayPort, four USB 3.0 ports, and Gigabit Ethernet. (Thanks to Liliputing for the tip.)
