IWILL ZMAXdp Dual Opteron Small Form Factor Barebones System
December 29, 2006

As technology ages it generally becomes less desirable rather quickly as the newer items on the market offer greater performance and other benefits that consumers want or need. It is rare for a product that is more than a year old to still be of interest, but that is exactly what we have with the item up for review. The IWILL ZMAXdp Dual Opteron Small Form Factor Barebones System has actually reached the end of its life in production, but they are still for sale, and are still quite popular among some enthusiasts. Not something that you can say about many tech products released in 2004, is it?


The ZMAXdp come to us from Geeks.com, one of the few places online that still stocks this barebone kit. In addition to being able to support the computing power of two dual-core Opteron processors (effectively quad-core) in a extremely small housing, the price tag definitely contributes to its continued popularity. Presently on sale for $191.95, it really is an inexpensive foundation to build an extremely powerful system around.
