Many tech companies claim to be the first, the best, or the smallest of anything I'm often wary. But when you look at the image of CompuLab's Fit-PC Slim, it could very well be the tiniest machine capable of running Windows XP yet.
The original Fit-PC 1.0 was already a small machine, measuring about 4.7 inches x 4.5 inches x 1.6 inches and weighing about 1.1 pounds. The new model, however, makes the first version look bloated. Weighing less than a pound, the Fit-PC Slim takes up only about 4.3 inches x 3.9 inches x 1.2 inches of space. Despite a reduced size, the new system only had to surrender the extra Ethernet port found in the original, but in return offers an extra USB slot and wireless connectivity.
