Tiny Gumstix computer

Now that's what we call a mini-computer. The aptly named Gumstix, according to Gizmodo, is a Linux-based computer that measures a diminutive 1 by 5 inches that's designed primarly for network testing and diagnosis. It's not a supercomputer, but it has a 400-MHz Intel chip and 64MB of memory--not bad, considering it can fit in your shirt pocket. And the best part of all is its equally small price of $206.
