When you make a claim like “Small Enough to Fit in Your Hand Yet Outperforms Most Desktop and Mobile Computers Available Today” in your press release, your hardware better not disappoint. Fortunately for Stealth.com, this little machine has the specs to back up that claim.
The company’s new LPC-100 packs some serious muscle beneath its tiny aluminum shell. The base model includes a dual-core Celeron T3100 at 1.9Ghz, though you can upgrade to a Core 2 Duo T8400 (2.26Ghz) or T9100 (2.53Ghz). There are two DDR3 SODIMM slots supporting a maximum of 4GB memory and a SATA hookup for 160-500GB hard drives. Solid state drives are available as well.
For a device which is smaller than some 3.5″ external hard drive cases I’ve seen, the LPC-100 certainly isn’t lacking for port options. Here’s what it’s got:
- 2PS/2 ports
- 2 serial ports
- 3 USB 2.0 ports
- VGA or DVI output
- Gigabit ethernet
- Microphone and headphone connections
The LPC-100 even runs on 12 volts DC, making it a pretty ideal device for car PCs. This kind of performance and flexibility is such a small package usually comes at a premium, however, and the LPC-100 is priced accordingly. The base model will set you back nearly $1300 US.
Sure, contrary to their hyperbolic PR claim you can easily blow this thing out of the water performance-wise with a custom built desktop rig, but good luck fitting it into a case that size.
