CompuLab’s latest tiny, fanless desktop computer is powered by a low-power AMD processor, supports up to 8GB of RAM, and is designed to run Linux Mint or Windows 7 or later.

The new CompuLab fitlet line of mini computers will be available in February, with prices starting at $129 for a barebones system.

CompuLab has been offering a line of mini PCs under the Fit-PC and MintBox names for a few years. The new fitlet machines will come in three different models.

There will be an entry-level fitlet-B with an AMD E1- Micro6200T processor with Radeon R2 graphics. This is the model that will sell for $129 (without storage or RAM).

Next up is the fitlet-i with an AMD A4 Micro-6400T processor and Radeon R3 graphics. This is

The third model is the fitlet-X which is aimed at industrial applications. This model has the same AMD A4 chip as the i series, but also features advanced networking hardware.

All three models support dual displays thanks to two HDMI 1.4a ports and each supports up to 8GB of RAM, up to 1TB of storage thanks to an mSATA 3.0 6 Gpbs slot. You can also add external drivs thanks to an eSATA port or use microSDXC cards for removable storage.

Fitlet systems have Gigabit Ethernet, 802.11ac WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, 2 USB 3.0 ports, 4 USB 2.0 ports, S/PDIF 7.1 channel audio, the i sereis features RS232, UART, GPIO, and SMBUS connectors.

CompuLab says each system supports Windows 7, Windows 8, or Windows 8.1 64-bit software. But you’ll also be able to buy MintBox models that ship with Linux Mint software.

Note that while all of the new fitlet systems feature AMD Mullins chips, the entry-level fitlet-B scores much lower in benchmarks than the models with more powerful versions of AMD’s low-power processor.

According CompuLab’s own benchmark chart, all three systems are also a bit less powerful than the company’s Intense PC Value PC which has an Intel Celeron 1047UE processor and a starting price of $442.

  1. fitlet-X and and a good AC wifi dongle and either IpFire/pfSense/SmoothWall/mOnOwall and you have one amazing router on steroids and probably at a great price.

  2. According CompuLab’s own benchmark chart, all three systems are also a bit less powerful than the company’s Intense PC Value PC which has an Intel Celeron 1047UE processor and a starting price of $442.

    Well considering the 1047UE has a 17W TDP Vs 4.5W of the 6400T, this should be expected.

  3. I think it is really neat. I might be a little biased since the name of the CPU is the same as my last name; Mullins. 🙂 It also seems like a really good price.

  4. Nice! Been a little worried recently about Mullins reaching the channel in volume.

    Interesting…looks like these fitlets are ideal for router boxes and the like.

    edited for additional commentary.

    1. It does appear that Mullins is finally getting some traction. With Intel backing off their contra-revenue it appears more decisions by OEMs will be based on performance from here on out. I’ll admit that Bay Trail has always been a less desirable solution compared to Mullins if one looks at the whole picture of power, efficiency, and graphics.

      1. Please don’t read my commentary as general approval or fanboyism for AMD. I was only expressing interest in seeing a product I had not previously seen as broadly available.

        For the use case I mention above, Bay Trail could just as easily have fit the bill and probably for a few bucks cheaper. For a generic mini desktop, I’d pay a few extra dollars for a Haswell Celeron.

  5. These look pretty neat, but I just got my MeegoPad T01 this morning, so it’s X-mas for me! 🙂

    1. So what do you think about the T01, was it worth the $110 ? What do you use it for, that a tablet like this one ( https://tinyurl.com/ktl53ea ) just won’t fit for your needs ? And allso, how does it handle YouTube playback in 1080p?

      1. The tablet you linked don’t have an HDMI, but I guess I’d be able to find one with similar price and a video output as well. (I stand corrected, there is an HDMI, they just didn’ list at the I/O)
        I think it was worth it. I plan to use it in my office, I usually bring my notebook or my DV8P as I don’t have a workstation, only a screen and a keyboard. I’ll also use it for a bit with my TV, just to see if it makes sense for me to browse on the big screen (I used to have an Android stick, but I rarely ever used it). It handles FullHD youtube very well, killa sample MKV, BigBuck Bunny and all.
        The reason I bought it in the first place thou was sheer curiosity. I already have a Win tablet (a DV8P), so I’m familiar with the hardware’s capabilities, and I didn’t want a second tablet. I might find some use to it as a PoS terminal at my company, or as a video server, a torrent server or some embedded use at a project.
        Also goddamn it, it’s a full PC in a size of a pack of chewing gums! How crazy is that? 😀

  6. I love seeing APUs used in Mini PCs. They might not have as powerful of CPUs, but I like the idea of having a GPU better than an Intel HD.

    The A4 model sounds interesting. I wonder if they have pricing for that model too.
