Giga-Byte G-MAX TA4 Mini PC Review - What Comes in the TA4's Box?
(Page 2 of 10 )
When I first received the package, I was immediately struck by the small size of the box the system came in. I was even more surprised to find that the system was approximately one fourth the size of the box which housed it, heavily protected in its Styrofoam casing.
Included in the package is the following:
PC Case and system
Specialized Heat Sink*
External Power Supply Unit
24X Slim CD-ROM or DVD-Rom (Optional)
PCMCIA Slot (Optional)
2.5-inch Slim Hard Drive (Optional)
Keyboard and Mouse (Optional)
Flat Screen to CRT Adaptor
System Assembly Manual
Windows Driver CD
Screws for the Slim Hard Drive and CR-ROM.
*The specialized heat sink is specifically for the purposes of this particular unit. Because of its slim size – about as thick as a PlayStation 2 – regular desktop processor heat sinks will not fit in this case.
As you can see, a good chunk of the components listed are optional. At a base price of $137, there’s not much more you can really ask for, other than a quality motherboard and case. My media sample came with everything with a 30GB hard drive, DVD-ROM, PCMCIA Slot, and Pentilisted except the system manual, keyboard and mouse, ribbon cable, and screws. It did, however, come um 4 (2.8GHz) processor. Here are the system specifications according to the Giga-Byte TA4 specification page:
