Sonnet extends xMac server chassis lineup with 2H model
<a href="http://macnn.com/rd/281634==http://www.sonnettech.com/" rel='nofollow'>Sonnet</a> today introduced the <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/281635==http://www.sonnettech.com/product/xmacminiserver.html" rel='nofollow'>xMac mini Server 2H</a>, a second model of the company's xMac mini Server Thunderbolt to PCIe expansion system and 1U rackmount enclosure for a Mac mini with a Thunderbolt port. The new xMac mini Server 2H enables the use of two half-length, full-height PCIe cards -- allowing users to select from and install the majority of Thunderbolt-compatible cards into either slot. Additionally, the new model features design improvements such as shortening the chassis' length to 16 inches, which allows it to be deployed in a wider range of popular mobile racks, carts, and rack-bags.<br />
<br />
The expansion systems include a 100W power supply, and employ variable-speed fans to cool the cards and computer. A new ultra-quiet fan kit option for cool-operating cards is also now available. The Mac mini's Gigabit Ethernet, USB 3.0, and HDMI interfaces are extended to panel-mounted connectors on the back of the unit, and a USB 3.0 interface and power switch are mounted on the front. The xMac mini Server's second Thunderbolt port enables the daisy-chain connection of additional Thunderbolt peripherals. <br />
<br />
The xMac Mini Server 2H will be available in late April at a suggested retail price of $1,295. The original xMac Mini Server is still available, also at a retail price of $1,295. The xMac mini Server Quiet Fan Kit is available now for $80. <br />
