This Cerebra machine is based on an 810E motherboard from Kranion, which incidentally is also made by Cerebra. A look inside the PC reveals its two PCI slots and an AMR slot. This may be sufficient for an office user, but not for a home user.

Also being based on an 810E board, there is no AGP slot, so you will have to make do with the onboard graphics. The motherboard has onboard sound, and comes with multimedia speakers.

To test the PC, we ran BW 2001 and CC W 2001 on it. These benchmarks test the overall performance of a system in running productivity and high-end applications respectively. The PC performed exceptionally well in both tests, getting scores of 24.4 and 25.6 respectively. Compared to other PCs we tested in our last month’s shootout, this one scored the highest. Its closet rival was Connoi with 22.9 in BW, and the Netkracker with 23.1 in
CCW.

A useful feature of this PC is that it comes with a Windows 98 recovery CD, which will come in handy if your system crashes. The PC also comes with a multimedia keyboard, which has 21 extra keys on it for adjusting volume, opening your e-mail client, and browser. Also included in the package are Sulipi 9 Lite, a mouse pad, headphones and a computer-dust protection cover. It, however, doesn’t have an Ethernet card.

Overall, this PC has a host of useful features and performance to go with it. It can be used by anyone for normal productivity applications, be it office or home. You’ll of course, need a network card to use it in an
office.
