Israeli firm readies pocket-friendly desktop PC

Set to help Linux lovers wrestle with ARM

Boost IT visibility and business value

Israel-based maker of wee PCs, CompuLab, has said it will ship an even more tiny machine in April. The Trim-Slice's 2.5in HDD-like dimensions are all due to Nvidia's Tegra 2 system-on-a-chip.

Of course, being ARM-based, you won't be running Windows on the Trim-Slice - not yet, at any rate - and Linux-on-ARM is at a relatively early stage in its development.

But that's something CompuLab hopes Trim-Slice will help accelerate. And there's always Android, of course.

Trim-Slice measures a mere 130 x 95 x 15mm - less than a tablet and not much bigger than a phone. Inside it crams in said SoC plus 1GB of 800MHz DDR 2 memory and has room for a 64GB Sata SSD.

Outputs? HDMI for the display, analogi and SPDIF audio, Gigabit Ethernet for wired networking, and a quartet of USB 2.0 ports. There's also an RS-232 serial port for geeks of a certain age.

The sliver-like computer has on-board Bluetooth and 802.11n Wi-Fi.

CompuLab said it hasn't decided how much it'll charge for Trim-Slices, or what configurations it will offer. Details will be revealed when it starts taking orders for the boxes in April. ®
