By: TweakTown Staff | Posted: Aug 26, 2002 4:13 pm has 2 reviews up for us to suss out with the first being on the Casetek Tiny Tower Case.

Ask any computer DIY enthusiast of their views on compact computer casings and most would quip back that it is actually a taboo. Common reasons cited would be the lack of expansion, ventilation and usefulness with regards to upgrading. To most people of this group, medium-tower casings are an absolute minimum requirement for a PC setup. But what if you are really out of space to accomodate large and bulky casings? Mini towers might be an option but besides the marginally reduced height, most of the other dimensions remain similar. Only compact casings such as micro-ATX casings can offer much smaller dimensions. Of course, for this you will have to forego the use of standard ATX motherboards and settle for smaller micro-ATX versions.
Followed up by a look at the CyQ've WalkieMusic MP3 Deluxe
As such, we now come to the introduction of the "WalkieMusic MP3 Deluxe" from CyQ've (pronounced as sai kju:v). This is a portable player that can only play 8cm CDR/CDRW. Why only 8cm disks, you ask? Well, 8cm discs would essentially make the player smaller, lighter and more portable when compared to its other counterparts in the market that plays 12cm disks. Though an 8cm CDR/CDRW cannot hold as much data as a 12cm disk, it can still hold about 40 to 45 MP3 songs with a capacity of about 200MB. A good quality 8cm CDR/CDRW with its own plastic casing can be purchased for about S$5. Thus, this represents an attractive proposition for those who are looking for portability, and yet want a significant amount of storage for the money.
