The Trim Slice computer from CompuLab is a miniature desktop PC with a 1 GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual core processor, 4 USB ports, HDMI output, an SD card slot and a microSD card slot and an optional WiFi adapter. The computer users just 6W of power or less and sells for $280. But what you don’t get for that price is a hard drive.
When the Trim Slice originally went on sale a few months ago the idea was that you would add an SD card or USB storage device yourself. But now the company is offering the Trim Slice H250 — a model with a 250GB hard drive and Ubuntu Linux operating system preloaded for $319.
The Trim Slice H250 also features 1GB of RAM, 802.11n WiFi, and Bluetooth dongle. It has a DVI port in addition to HDMI output. and S/PDIF 5.1 audio output.
The hard drive model is a little bulkier than the diskless version, but it’s still pretty tiny for a desktop computer, measuring 5.1″ x 3.7″ x 0.98″. The diskless model measures 5.1″ x 3.7″ x 0.6″.
