Exclusive: Review of the Tranquil PC iMono PC
The iMono is the finest computer system ever created by Tranquil PC. The result of months of R&D can now be enjoyed and experienced in the iMono
Designed by Tranquil
The design criteria for iMono was to design and create a super slim, small, 100% silent, 100% ventless, 100% fanless, 100% high performance system – that not only delivered a technically superior solution but that did it in style.
High Performance, in silence
By utilising the latest 2nd Generation Core processors from Intel combined with original Intel main boards it was possible to realise the design. This combined with major investment into our own internal high precision, high speed machining equipment, allowed the design to become a reality. Completely design and manufactured in Manchester, UK – the iMono system is now available.
The 35mm (not including feet) super slim chassis is created from a single billet of aerospace grade aluminum, this means a chassis with no seams, no joins, no unslightly screws – just smooth lines and a beauty never seen in a PC system before.
Housing a choice of 2nd Generation Core Processors from Intel, and Intel’s high performance H61 main board, the system performs like nothing else of this size. With modern connectivity to the rear, the uses of the iMono system are unlimited.
