Admittedly, small form factor machines have seemingly vanished from the spotlight in recent years, but there are still a handful of companies out there working at them. CompuLab is one of them, and this week they've introduced the Trim-Slice.
The Trim-Slice H is an ARM Cortex A9-powered desktop that runs on NVIDIA
's Tegra 2 chipset. The Trim-Slice further extends the usability of ARM
on the desktop by incorporating an accessible bay for a 2.5" SATA hard-disk inside the miniature fanless casing, and will be offered in a couple of models: the $279 Trim-Slice H Diskless, where the buyer can add the hard disk or SSD, and the $319 Trim-Slice H250 which comes with a 250GB hard disk and Linux pre-installed.
Both models incorporate 1 GHz Tegra 2, 1 GB RAM, HDMI and DVI ports, Gigabit Ethernet, built-in 802.11n WiFi, 4 USB ports, 2 SD slots, RS232 serial port and a USB Bluetooth adapter.
