CompuLab's Fit-PC Slim: Tiniest Windows XP system

The "Fit-PC Slim" measures 4.3 x 3.9 x 1.2 inches (110 x 100 x 30mm), but includes a 500MHz AMD Geode LX800, Ethernet, VGA output, available WiFi, and a 2.5-inch hard drive option, says CompuLab.The Fit-PC Slim apparently includes much the same ingredients as […]

CompuLab introduced a tiny fanless PC using 4-6 Watts of power. The "Fit-PC Slim" measures 4.3 x 3.9 x 1.2 inches (110 x 100 x 30mm), but includes a 500MHz AMD Geode LX800, Ethernet, VGA output, available WiFi, and a 2.5-inch hard drive option, says CompuLab.

The Fit-PC Slim apparently includes much the same ingredients as CompuLab's earlier Fit-PC, introduced last year. The original Fit-PC used CompuLab's CM-iGLX computer-on-module (COM), which like the new Fit-PC Slim includes a 500MHz AMD Geode LX800 processor plus display, disk, USB, and networking controllers.

While the original Fit-PC measured 4.7 x 4.6 x 1.6 inches (119 x 117 x 41mm), the Fit-PC Slim is even smaller, at 4.3 x 3.9 x 1.2 (109 x 99 x 30mm) inches, says CompuLab. These dimensions make it tinier than the eBox-4300, once claimed to be the world's smallest Windows XP-capable system when it was launched last December.

Despite being smaller than the original Fit-PC, the Fit-PC Slim optionally increases memory from 256MB to 512MB. The new version also adds an easily accessible bay for 2.5-inch hard drives (pictured above). The Fit-PC was available with a hard drive as well, but the drive was "deeply buried," by CompuLab's own admission.
