This blog has been doing quite well lately, and as a result of having visitor numbers I never imagined I would, people have been offering me stuff to review. I’ve declined most of these offers. I feel bad writing about things I wouldn’t normally get excited about. But when I saw this little machine pop up on Engadget, I couldn’t help myself. I just had to see if they’d send me a review unit. So I contacted Compulab, and sure enough they did.
The Fit-PC2 is the world’s smallest fully functional desktop PC. The original Fit-PC had a slow 500 MHz AMD Geode processor, but its successor is based on Intel’s Atom line of CPU’s and thus much quicker. I’ll have to get back to you about things like performance. I’ll do a full review this week. But I wanted to let you see how really tiny this computer is. Even the package it came in was tiny. I couldn’t help but chuckle when the UPS guy handed it to me.
This was the first time I’ve had to use my camera’s macro setting to take snapshots of a computer. Perhaps I shouldn’t have, because just like in all the press shots I’ve seen of it it looks bigger than it actually is.
Here’s the Fit-PC alongside my already tiny Asus Eee-PC 901. The wifi antenna should help give you a feel for the dimensions.
Stay tuned for my review later this week.
