It’s not a rare thing in the recent history of the hi-tech industry for a company engaged into OEM shipments to begin to sell its produce under its own brand. The Taiwan-based Foxconn is a good example of such transformation. Besides manufacturing mainboards and system cases, the company has recently begun to promote its own barebone systems.

And today we’re going to review a barebone model Foxconn puts its main stake on. It’s called E-bot. The very name of the system – without those typical abbreviations or numerical indexes – says we deal with something unusual here. Let’s see how different this E-bot really is.
