We're big fans of tiny PCs, and this CompuLab fit-PC2i is the smallest one yet. Even though it's just 4 inches wide and slightly over an inch tall, it can still run Windows 7 and blast 1080p video all day long. It's made out of aluminum, so it's super light at 13 ounces, just right for hanging on the back of a flat panel display for complete Web freedom in the home theater.
The superlight (13oz) PC runs your choice of an Intel Atom Z530 1.6GHz, or Atom Z510 1.1GHz processor, and it's nice and quiet because this 8-watt PC is so efficient it doesn't even need a fan blowing inside. Pair this up with a tricky home theater mouse, a wireless mini-keyboard, or a cellphone-like controller, and you're all set. Next month, you can pick up the loaded model with Windows 7 Professional on board for $499, or get the cheapest one for $245.
Take a closer look at all the inputs in the back of this baby including a quartet of USB ports, a couple of gigabit Ethernet ports... alas, there's DVI instead of HDMI (update: weird, looks like HDMI to us, too):
