Verdict

Rs 65,000 for the VU Boss doesn’t make too much sense in terms of value. But if you have a really cramped desk and are looking for a space-saving Desktop—besides a 22-inch widescreen—the VU Boss might prove worth it.

VU Boss detailed review



Dinky Desktop Power

The VU Boss is a small form factor PC that targets the growing trend of small and slim in the lifestyle segment of Desktop computing.

This PC is tiffin-box-sized. The wireless RF keyboard incorporates a tracker ball and is the sole input device. The ball is placed on the right, with the click buttons on the left—these allow for free use of the keyboard in your palms.

The 22-inch widescreen LCD panel makes the VU Boss a pleasure of a computing experience. On a sour note, accessing the power switch on the box becomes a tricky thing when it’s behind the LCD. In a cold start scenario, the power switch on the keyboard just doesn’t work, making one depend on the main power switch on VU—difficult to get to if the box is hooked behind the 22-inch panel.
The LCD panel’s base is sturdy, but there’s no swirl—not a good thing for a big screen. The integrated 2 W stereo speakers in the LCD panel just manages to get the job done! The S-Video/DVI out ports being on the back panel of the VU PC beside the AV/TV in ports makes hooking up to a TV straightforward job: this is a viable idea for a media centre PC.

Taking the box apart reveals the Intel Mobile class Core Duo T2350 (1866 MHz) processor running on the Intel i945GM chipset. The integrated INTEL GMA 950 graphics solution manages a score of 396 in 3D Mark 05—decent for a machine of this form factor.

The PC Mark 05 score of 2985 reflects average processing power. The VU PC is pre-loaded with Windows XP Professional, and with 512 MB of RAM, performance is good enough for word processing, surfing, and other everyday computing staples. The optical drive is a smooth-operating slide-in Matshita DVD-ROM.

Rs 65,000 for the VU Boss doesn’t make too much sense in terms of value. But if you have a really cramped desk and are looking for a space-saving Desktop—besides a 22-inch widescreen—the VU Boss might prove worth it.
