The CubitP4 is the latest small form factor PC from UK design firm Hoojum. It is finished in gleaming mirror chrome and is all power under the hood.
From Hoojum’s Website:
“It has all the functionality of the fastest, most powerful “tower” PCs, in a sleek, unique and solidly built unit. Whether you’re using complex design programs or playing the most demanding games, the Cubit P4 will make your computing experience effortless. But this is no monster to hide under your desk: we want you to show it off. We think computers should be seen more and heard less. So it’s beautiful – and quiet
Each Cubit P4 is made of 3.5kg of solid aluminium, individually polished and plated to a mirror finish by craftsmen here in the UK, to create a look and build quality never before seen in computing. We’ve also made the construction of the Cubit P4 play an integral part in keeping components cool, and thus keeping the unit quiet.”
