Phil Rees Pentium M desktop reviewed in Music TechMusic Tech magazine review

Music Tech reviewed one of our Pentium M desktop PCs in the December 2005 issue. This went on sale on 17 November.

The introduction to this article by Hollin Jones is:
"Computer noise can ruin an otherwise perfectly good recording. but noise is not something that will worry owners of the new Pentium M Desktop from Phil Rees.".

The reviewer says that "it is the quietest PC we have ever used". In summary, the system is described as "incredibly quiet" and of "solid construction". It is awarded 8/10.

The verdict of this review is: "A good performer, well specified and unbelievably quiet. A serious contender if noise is an issue.".

Intel Pentium M mobile processors have great compatibility, and benchmark extremely well, with audio and music applications. They produce far less the heat than equivalent desktop processors, and so can be cooled much more quietly.

There is now an adaptor that lets us fit Pentium M processors into compatible desktop motherboards. This means that you get all the features of a high-spec desktop motherboard, but in a system which can be virtually silent!
