German computer company Cirrus7 has given its award-winning desktop PC an Intel Haswell refresh.

All models of the Nimbus, which won the prestigious ‘Red Dot’ design award earlier in the year, get a speed bump but with no increase in price.

At its cheapest, the €528 base model now features:

  • Intel Celeron Processor G1840 @ 2.8GHz (dual core)
  • 4GB RAM
  • 128GB SSD
  • Intel HD Integrated Graphics
  • Ubuntu 14.04 LTS

Additional processor options also get a spec boost, and span the Intel Core i3-4350T @ 3.10 GHz (+€99) through to the Intel Core i7-4790T @ 2.7GHz (+€260).

Like any PC company worth its silicon, Cirrus7 let you customise and configure each component of the Nimbus individually. Add 16GB RAM, set up a RAID array of 1TB SSDs and select from a range of operating systems if Ubuntu 14.04 LTS isn’t your thing.

Arguably the best looking PC, if not the most well known, the Nimbus features an innovative custom-designed chassis made of stacked laser-cut aluminium slats. This creates a case that doesn’t just look great, but doubles up as a passive-cooling heatsink, too.
