Xi3 Corporation Unveils The Xi3 Modular Computer

Many assembled computers out there can be considered modular to a certain extent, since it’s fairly easy to swap in some parts, but the Xi3 Modular Computer from Xi3 goes the extra mile by making things a little easier. The device you see here features three modular boards stored within an aluminum case. The first board contains the processors and RAM while the two additional I/O boards handle all the other connectivity and input/output requirements. Another major feature of this device is that it requires an average of 20 Watts or less to operate. The company is touting it as the last computer that you’ll ever need to buy, since the components can be easily upgraded. In case you’re wondering, pricing for the base model which includes a 1.8GHz AMD Athlon 64 processor, 2GB of RAM and 8GB of flash storage is $850, making this computer slightly expensive, especially since that price doesn’t even include a Windows operating system, though the company is targeting the embedded market with it. Would you be willing to pay such a price for a modular computer?
