Taipei, Taiwan; December 9, 2005 –
ASUSTeK Computer Inc. (ASUS), a leading provider of high-performance
system solutions, today introduced the TM-21 chassis series, which
adopted simple yet elegant designs that represent minimalism at its
best, and leveraged unique thermal innovations to enable
high-performance computing. Minimalism at its best
classic minimalism concept of the TM-21 series is available in two
colors, the always-chic black and white. All drive bays and front
input/output ports are covered by a front-bezel that utilizes a
paint-coating method that is used on grand pianos to deliver a smooth
and elegant look. The silver frame design further gives the chassis a
stereoscopic feel that when teamed with the blue LED on/off button and
hard drive indicator, represents the very best of minimalism.
Thermal peformance for powerful systems
TM-21 series supports flexible fan options, which includes space for
two 8cm rear fans (one is upgradeable to 9cm) and one 8cm front fan.
For fast ventilation, the rear hexagon-shaped holes and side panel
offer larger area for smooth airflow and heat dissipation. By
maintaining system temperature, the TM-21 series brings stability to
powerful processing platforms from both AMD and Intel.
Expandability for the future
the ability to accommodate three 3.5-inch internal drive bays and
input/output support for two 3.5-inch and two 5.25-inch drives, the
TM-21 series delivers ample data storage capability.
Other expansion specifications include COM2 port, data security
lock, USB 2.0 and IEEE 1394, providing scalability for future upgrades.
TM-21 series was created with easy component installation and
maintenance in mind. The drive bays, hidden behind the stylish covers,
not only offer quick drive installation but also prevent protruding
buttons to ruin the continues sleekness of the chassis.
The TM-21 series is ideal for those who care about how their
systems look and how they perform. With stylish simplicity and
industry-leading thermal designs, the TM-21 series blends powerful
computing in a gorgeous chassis that fits in any settings from office
to home and anywhere in between.
