I won’t rant much about the configuration of the systems: the table below gives you more detailed information than my mentioning the same in the body of the review would do. Let’s better take a closer look at those numerous small things that are not included into the specification.
So, the technical characteristics of the two barebone systems are like follows:
As I said above, the iDEQ 210P is a classic barebone and its design is quite traditional with a solid chassis, an aluminum case and a traditional system of ventilation. The device is dismantled easily: you just unfasten the four screws at the rear panel and take off the top and side walls. The component layout inside doesn’t differ from any other typical barebone.
But unlike with many competing models, the user of an iDEQ 210P is not going to remove or unfasten anything else once the side and top walls are taken off. Despite the classic approach to placing the components, it is most easy to access any connector. You don’t even have to remove the top panel – the CPU cooler can be easily accessed from top as well as from a side.
