Israeli PC maker Compulab’s latest mini desktop is a fanelss PC called the fitlet2. It measures about 4.4″ x 3.3″ x 1″ (or so), weighs about 12 ounces, and has an all-metal chassis with a convection cooling system that doesn’t require any fans or vents.
The fitlet2 isn’t exactly a high-performance PC. It’s powered by a choice of Intel Apollo Lake processors, and Compulab positions it as a system you could use as an Internet of Things gateway, among other things. But it’s a small, low-cost, low-power computer that could certainly be used for other things as well.
Prices should start at $153, although I suspect that you’ll only get a barebones model for that price.
Compulab says the fitlet 2 supports up to 16GB of RAM and can use M.2 SATA solid state drives, eMMC storage, or a 2.5 inch hard drive or SSD.
It will be available with Intel Atom x5-E3930, Atom x7-E3950, or Celeron J3455 processor options.
Other specs include:
- HDMI 1.4 and DIsplayPort 1.2 for up to two displays
- Stereo mic/line in and line-out jacks and S/PDIF
- Up to 8 USB ports (6 x USB 2.0 and 2x USB 3.0)
- Up to 4 Gigabit Ethernet ports
- Optional 802.11ac WiFi, Bluetooth and/or 4G cellular
The computer is also designed to be easy to disassemble so you can add memory, storage, or other hardware.
The models with lower-power processors are about an inch high, while the higher-performance models at about 1.3″ to make room for the cooling fins.
