Welcome to Miniature PC Release Week

Stealth Computer releases a PC that's about about the size of a hardcover book.

Apparently it's Miniature PC Release Week and nobody told me.

On Monday, Fujitsu officially announced the U810 mini-notebook , and on Tuesday, Stealth Computer released a mini PC that it says will fit into a human palm (well, sort of). Though I'm sure the results will differ for everyone, suffice it to say, this is a wee computer.

It measures just under 3 inches tall, 6 inches wide and 10 inches deep. The Little PC--not the most creative or specific name, but whatever--will have Intel's Pentium and Celeron M series processors, and lots of connectivity options: LAN, serial, USB 2.0, FireWire, video, audio, and more.

The tiny PC can be customized too. The PCI card slot means the owner can add a wireless or video card, or really, whatever they want. The 160GB hard drive is built to absorb extra shock, but it can also be swapped out for a solid state drive or flash drive. A DVD/CD-RW drive is standard, but a DVD burner can be substituted.

It's Windows Vista, XP or Linux-compatible, and the price tag is $995. The Little PC is available now on Stealth's Web site.
