As reporters, we tend to be wary whenever a company claims to be the first, the best, or the smallest of anything. But when we saw an image of CompuLab's Fit-PC Slim, we thought it could very well be the tiniest machine capable of running Windows XP yet.
The original Fit-PC 1.0 was already a minute machine, measuring about 4.7 inches x 4.5 inches x 1.6 inches and weighing about 1.1 pounds. The new model, however, makes the first version look bloated. Weighing less than a pound, the Fit-PC Slim takes up only about 4.3 inches x 3.9 inches x 1.2 inches of space. Despite a reduced size, the new system only had to surrender the extra Ethernet port found in the original, but in return offers an extra USB slot and wireless connectivity.
500MHz AMD Geode LC800 processor
2.5-inch 60GB HDD
Ethernet and 802.11b/g connectivity
Three USB 2.0 ports
Headphone and microphone jacks
Linux or Windows XP Home SP3 operating system
