Fit-PC 2 smallest nettop

fit-pc2CompuLab introduces fit-PC2 – the smallest, most power-efficient Intel Atom PC to date.

The most striking feature of fit-PC2 is its size – 4″ x 4.5″ x 1.05″ – smaller than a CD.
fit-PC2 architecture is what sets it apart from other nettop PCs – fit-PC2 is designed around the Intel Atom Z530 1.6GHz and the ultra low power Intel US15W system controller hub, rather than the Atom N270 and 945G used in other nettop-PCs, thereby reducing power consumption by more than two thirds.

US15W incorporates hardware video acceleration. This allows fit-PC2 to run Windows XP or Ubuntu Linux at just 6W and to play full HD 1080p H.264 video using less than 7W.
