Compulab Fit PC3 Nettop

About a year ago, Compulab first showed us the Fit-PC3, a nettop that features HD graphics capabilities and now it’s finally available for purchase.  The Fit-PC3 is unusual in that it uses anAMD embedded processor with Radeon HD graphics. The basic model uses 2GB of RAM, an AMD G-T44R 1.2 GHz single core, 9W processor and Radeon HD 6250 graphics for $345.  There are also other configurations with prices ranging from $328 to $698.

There is space for 2 sticks of DDR3 memory, a hard drive, and wireless modules. It has 2 USB 3.0 ports, 2 USB 2.0 ports, HDMI, DisplayPort, S/PDIF 7.1 channel audio, and Gigabit Ethernet as well as 2 eSATA ports and an RS232 serial port.

$698 gets you the  top of the line model with a 1.65 GHz AMD G-T56N dual core 18W processor and Radeon HD 6320 graphics. That model also has 4GB of RAM, a 250GB hard drive, 802.11b/g/n WiFi and runs Windows 7 Professional.

Trim Slice Chromium Nettop

The Trim Slice is a tiny $199 nettop with a 1 GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual core processor, HDMI output, and a few SD card slots.  Add some internal storage, WiFi and Bluetooth capabilities and you’ve got a very capable little machine.  Compulab, the company behind the Trim Slice has been pushing the platform for Linux, or even Google Android, they’ve now shown the little computer running Google Chromium OS.

Chromium is the open source version of Chrome OS, so it doesn’t have some of the built-in hardware security features found in Chrome OS, and nobody’s promising a 10 second boot time for Chromium on the Trim Slice.  But, it makes a great cheap machine to run the browse-based operating system and  Compulab says the Trim Slice can support Chromium OS on an HD display or even dual monitors.

Compulab Trimslice Nettop

Back in January, we saw the Compulab Trim Slice, a Tegra 2-powered nettop with some impressive specs.   To jog your memory, the Trim Slice’s compact case is just six tenths of an inch thick.  Underneath the cover is a  dual-core ARM Cortex A9 CPU, GeForce ULP chip, SATA SSD, 1GB of RAM, 802.11n WiFI, Bluetooth, and a bevvy of I/O ports.

The Trim Slice will have a starting price of $199 for a model that lacks internal WiFi and storage.  For just a $20 upgrade, you get 4GB of microSD storage and a WiFi dongle and there’s also a “Pro” version with a 32GB SSD and wireless and Bluetooth dongles ($319).

Check out the Trim Slice here, but be warned, if you’re a beginner you might want to wait a while since Compulab warns that while the hardware has been finalized, the software is still a work in progress.
