Compulab has updated its fitlet line of mini PCs with a new model sporting an AMD A10 Micro-6700T processor. That’s the most powerful member of AMD’s low-power Mullins line of chips.
Fitlet models with less powerful Mullins processors were launched in January, but the new model has a faster processor, higher-performance graphics, and… a higher price tag.
The new fitlet-H is priced at $436. There’s also a more affordable $314 fitlet-iA10 with the same processor if you don’t mind a slightly more industrial-looking case and a few other differences.
Both models feature AMD’s 4.5 watt, 1.2 GHz quad-core 64-bit processor with Radeon R6 graphics, 2 Gigabit Ethernet ports, 802.11ac WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, two HDMI ports, and 7.1 channel audio with S/PDIF output.
But the fitlet-H features two memory slots for up to 16GB of RAM, whiel the fitlet-iA10 has just 1 slot for up to 8GB. The Fitlet-H also has room in the case for a 2.5 inch hard drive or SSD and an mSATA SSD, while the fitlet-iA10 has just an mSATA card slot and an eSATAp port for external storage.
The fitlet-H also has two USB 3.0 ports, six USB 2.0 ports (two more than the fitlet-iA10), and a serial port as well as a microSD card slot.
You can find a complete comparison of the two systems at the fit-PC website.
Compulab sells most of its mini-computers as barebones systems, which means you’ll need to provide your own memory, storage and operating system, but there are some models that come with all the hardware pre-installed, along with Windows or Linux Mint software.
The MintBox Mini, for example, is a $295 mini-desktop with an AMD A4 Micro-6400T processor, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, and Linux Mint.
