I spotted this unique PC while trolling the aisles at this year’s CES show. This cool looking PC from Korea’s Moneaul does something really unique if you’re into monitoring your energy consumption. The Minew G001 actually displays the current wattage consumed by your system on a large LED display, front and center on the computer.
I really love the clean aluminum case design of the G001, and they’ve done a great job hiding all the cables behind the removable side panels. The G001 even has 4 hidden power outlets under the cover on the left side of the machine, which let you monitor not just the power usage of your computer, but of your monitor and other peripherals. And that big wheel on the right side of the machine lets you control all of the connected devices with a simple push of the button in the middle.
The system is powered by a Core2 Duo E7500 CPU, and comes with 4GB of DDR2 RAM and a 320GB hard drive in its default configuration. At this point, Moneaul says the system will ship in about 3 months, and will retail for somewhere between $700 and $900 (USD), depending on configuration.
