Stealth Computer has been making tiny desktops for a long time now, but their latest, the Stealth Computer LPC-100, is their smallest yet. The LPC-100 is roughly four by six inches and less than an inch and a half thick – about as big as a large paperback.
Weighing just 1.2 pounds, the new mini-PC offers solid performance, especially considering it’s size; taking advantage of mobile Intel CPUs, Stealth Computer packed in Intel Celeron Dual-core and Core 2 Duo CPUs. Most ultra-small desktops in this range stick with a different class of processors, like the Intel Atom.
Since the LPC-100 takes a standard 2.5-inch hard drive, customers can order it with up to a 500GB HDD or a smaller but more rugged solid state drive. The box comes with Gigabit Ethernet, three USB 2.0 ports, two serial ports, DVI-I video out, analog audio in and out and two PS/2 ports. It can also handle up to 4GB of DDR2 SDRAM, while Intel’s integrated GM45 chipset handles video tasks.
Small, rugged computers don’t come cheaply, however, and Stealth’s new LPC-100 is no different. Starting at $995 without an operating system, configurations can reach over three thousand dollars even before accessories are added. The LPC-100 is available for order directly from Stealth Computer’s website.
