If you've ever wanted a PC packaged in a floating black diamond, eMachines has brought that fantasy to reality today with the launch of its new Mini-e ER1402 nettop. The company says its glossy black diamond-shaped chassis "floats" in a matte silver pedestal not exactly the work of science fiction, but cool nonetheless.

The ER1402 measures 7.1 inches in diameter and it can be affixed to the rear of VESA-complaint displays for a clean entertainment setup. It packs enough punch to deliver full HD video, but eMachines says the system is also suitable for flash-based social media games, Web surfing, word processing, VOIP calls, and viewing and editing photos.


Guts include an AMD Athlon II Neo processor, Nvidia GeForce 9200 graphics, 2GB of RAM, a 160GB HDD, HDMI, S/PDIF, 802.11b/g/n, four USB 2.0 ports, and a multi-card reader. The ER1402-05 ships with Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit as well as a keyboard and mouse. It's currently available through various retailers nationwide for $300.
