Compulab’s fit-PC3 is Super Tiny and Fairly Powerful

If you’re looking for a tiny computer (I’m talking really small) or a media streaming device that has more brass than your average bargain basement desktop, Compulab has your back.  Their new fit-PC3 is a little black box (just 1 inch thick and 6 inches across) that’s jam-packed with goodies.

Maxed-out specs on this PC include an AMD G-Series T56N processor (that’s the dual 1.6GHz core model), a Radeon HD 6130 graphics processor, up to 4GB of DDR3 RAM, and a hole big enough to fill with your favorite 2.5 inch hard drive.

The PC is so tiny that there isn’t even room enough for a fan inside but you don’t have to worry about overheating.  The system runs cool enough to disperse its own heat without mechanical intervention.  That means one less annoying whir to listen to while you’re concentrating intently on watching backlogged episodes of True Blood.

As far as ports go, there are 6, count them 6, USB 2.0 ports, an HDMI out, and dual eSATA slots for extra storage expansion.

This little device would make the perfect companion for you if you’ve got a streaming video fetish or just wanted to brag that your computer was the size of a paperback novel.

No word on pricing but if they broke the $800 mark for the maxed out version I’d be surprised.  Lower-end models should run in the $400 range.
