Stealth isn’t new to the mini PC game, but their newest effort, the LPC-670, might be their most impressive effort yet. In a box barely bigger than the palm of your hand, the company has managed to stuff in some of today’s hottest tech. All that miniaturization comes at a price, however, and it’s not cheap.
Unsurprisingly, Stealth has gone with mobile technology to make the LPC-670 as small as it is, but that doesn’t mean it’s a slouch. Users can pick one up with Intel’s Core i3, Core i5 or Core i7 CPUs – which means quad-core processors in a package smaller than the original Mac Mini. In fact, Stealth’s president Ed Boutillier made the bold claim that it packs more power per area than “any personal computer available today.”
The LPC-670 also packs in Gigabit Ethernet, 802.11b/g Wi-Fi, four USB 2.0 ports, DVI-I, HDMI and audio in/out. Inside, there’s up to 8GB of DDR3 memory and 2.5-inch storage space – which can be filled with either 750GB of hard drive space or 128GB of solid state storage space.
To keep the total volume down, the power supply is external. The included optical drive is a DVD+/-RW, though a Blu-ray option is available. While most users will likely order the LPC-670 with Windows 7, Windows XP and Linux are also options. How much does all this cost? The base model rings in at a pretty high $1,650. Pricey, sure, but for the industries that Stealth is targeting – military, research, transportation, mining, etc – it might just be worth it.
