This is a tiny computer. It may be small, but it's not some crappy thing that sacrifices all usefulness in the name of smaller size: it's actually got more power than my sad little netbook.
Here are the specs on CompuLab's 'TrimSlice' ultra-micro-mini-itty-bitty-teeny-weeny-PC:
- NVIDIA Tegra 2 Dual Core ARM Cortex A9 1GHz with integrated ultra-low power GeForce GPU
- 1 GB DDR2-800 RAM
- ATA SSD (up to 64GB)
- WiFi 802.11n + BT
- DMI 1.3 full-HD + DVI (dual head)
- Stereo line-out, line-in, 5.1 digital S/PDIF
It's also got four USB ports and a serial port, a full size SD slot and a micro SD slot, comes in a solid metal case, doesn't need a fan, and runs on only 3 watts, which is about as much energy as you generate with a medium-violent sneeze.
CompuLab sees TrimSlice powering media systems and even possibly gaming consoles, although the operating system that it ships with hasn't been announced yet. My guess is that it'll probably find it's most comfortable home as OEM guts inside small and slim home theatre-type equipment that doesn't take full advantage of its flexibility, but you shouldn't let that stop you from just buying a TrimSlice straight up and getting some use of its smallness.
The TrimSlice should sell for less than a tablet when it becomes available this April.
