The Fit PC is a nettop (tiny desktop) computer that looks like it’s about the size of a hard drive. Yet this tiny computer has enough space for a mainboard, CPU, RAM, and a 2.5 inch hard drive.

The latest version of the Fit PC is powered by an Intel Atom Z520 or Atom Z530 CPU with an Intel US15W low power system controller. It features hardware decoding for 1080p H.264 video while using less than 7W.The computer features a DVI output, 6 USB ports, and Ethernet and WiFi connectivity. It measures 4″ x 4.5″ x 1.05″.

The nettop features a fanless design due to its low power consumption, which means it’s virtually silent. It sells for between $245 and $400.

  1. Why on earth would it use an old-school hdd disc drive? Why not solid state drive to save more energy, be more compact, and avoid disc failures that all hard disc drives are prone to?

  2. This Fit PC will be a big help for PC users. They cannot just save energy but they can also help the environment as well.

    1. That is the mini-usb connector your seeing – –
      A ‘standard’ size – just not the ‘full size’ usb connector.

      Adapters are common – but your correct in that it will
      require a handful of adapters. A minor hassle.

  3. That is awesome, I don’t need one, but still I want one. I wonder if this would be powerful enough to be an HTPC.

    1. Ok, I just checked out their official site and it says that it “can make a decent home-theater PC.” I’m definitely getting one if I can find a good USB tuner. My current HTPC is my old retired 2.66GHz P4 running WinMCE 2005. I have a dual tuner card in it with hardware encoding. I’ll have to start looking at some external tuners.

      1. And its power usage is down into the range of practical to run
        from a small solar panel.
        Shut down that P4 that is running 16/7 and see what happens
        to your electric bill. 😉

      2. But the Fit PC is slower than your 2.66 P4 and to be quite honest – the price is absolutely horrible.

  4. I would like to build a 20 machine cluster – about a bookshelf sized computer center.

  5. That’s phenomenal.

    With decent marketing these could be found in offices the world over.

  6. Very impressive video, but I think they may have let their cat compose the score 🙂
