CompuLab has announced that the Trim Slice computer the company began showing off earlier this year is now available for purchase for $199 and up. The Trim Slice is a small (I mean, really, really small) desktop computer with a 1 GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual core processor.
The computer has 4 USB ports, 2 SD card slots, an RS232 port, and HDMI output. That’s pretty much all you get for $199. An extra $20 will get you an 802.11n WiFi adapter and 4GB microSD card, while you can deck out the computer with a 32GB solid state disk, Linux operating system, DVI port, WiFi and Bluetooth for $319.
Here’s the catch: CompuLab says the mini-desktop computer is currently suitable for developers and describes the software as a “work-in-progress.” The company web site cautions potential customers to “wait until the software matures” before purchasing the Trim Slice for personal use.
The Trim Slice measures just 5.1″ x 3.7″ x 0.6″ and uses between 2W and 6W of power.
