CompuLab Introduces fit-PC2 – a small and rugged Atom computer
|HAIFA, ISRAEL – February 19, 2009 – CompuLab introduces fit-PC2 – a tiny, inexpensive and power-efficient PC computer, based on Intel’s Atom Z530 processor and US15W chipset. Fit-PC2’s size, only 115 x 101 x 27 mm, makes it the smallest product in the market – it can practically fit in a pocket. Yet it boasts the capabilities of a full-featured desktop, including a 1.6GHz processor, 1GB RAM and 160GB harddisk, all packed into a rugged aluminum case. Fit-PC2 smoothly runs Windows XP / Vista / Win 7 and Linux, as well as all mainstream applications. Fit-PC2’s outstandingly low power consumption – just 6W, makes it the greenest PC ever introduced. Low power consumption provides another important benefit – fit-PC2 doesn’t require a fan, making it absolutely quiet and improving system reliability by obviating any moving parts. In combination with SSD, it creates a perfect shock tolerant system, ideal for car computers and automotive applications.|
