Wired Magazine is reporting that a new Wintel prototype that copies the Mac Mini design is due out this week.
Working prototypes of the Mac mini look-alike running Microsoft Windows and based on Intel's Pentium M CPU have already been built by Taiwan-based PC maker AOpen, according to two sources in Taiwan's PC manufacturing industry who have seen them.
According to the article, the prototype was built at the request of Intel and will be unveiled at the Computex trade show which starts on May 31st.
Wired comments that several companies already offer similar PCs but feels that the Mini offers a more attractive package at a lower cost.
