The fit-PC is designed as a small, quiet and eco-friendly computer that fits into a niche where most computers do not. The computer is about the size of a paperback book at 120 x 116 x 40 mm and weighs only 450 grams. It also runs almost silently since it doesn’t require any cooling fan.
The case of the fit-PC is dust and splash resistant and also acts as a heat sink to prevent the machine from getting to hot, negating the need for cooling fan altogether. This also will cut down on your electric bill since it only draws about 5 Watts of power. The company advertises it as a maintenance-free PC designed to run 24/7.
The box comes pre-loaded with Linux but it has the hardware to support Windows XP if you want. The specs include a 40 GB hard drive (this has to make a little noise), two 100 Mbps ethernet ports, an SXGA graphics controller with 1920 x 1440 resolution, 2 USB 2.0 ports, audio in/out, an RS-232 serial port should you decide to have it power your home automation, an AMD Geode LX800 CPU at 500 MHz and memory consisting of (and limited to) 256 MB DDR.
Getting your hands on your own super-quiet, super-small, so-so performing fit-PC computer will cost you $285 plus some shipping.
