Fit PC Slim is World’s Smallest Computer
by Mark R
Every once in a while, you want some space on your desk and you wish your desktop PC was smaller. The Fit-PC Slim may be the smallest computer of all, as it measures 4.3 x 3.9 x 1.2 inches.
Not only is it the smallest, but it might be the most energy efficient yet as it uses only 6 watts of power. It weighs in at a light 13 ounces.
So what is inside it? It has processor of an AMD Geode LX800 500MHz, 512MB RAM, plus the option of a 2.5″ hard drive. The Fit-PC is set up for Ethernet and Wi-Fi connectivity, and for VGA output.
You should be able to do a little bit of email, web browsing, or word processing, but it will probably remind you back in the days of old school IBMs. Still, how many PC’s can you stuff in the back of your pocket? Now, if you had a pocket big enough for a widescreen monitor, you will be set.
The price for the 256MB configuration without Wi-Fi is about $220. The 512MB version that is without Wi-Fi and hard drive will run about $245. There are other versions that include a 60MB hard drive and 512M of RAM ($295) or Linux or Windows XP ($335).
