Why should cell phones and tablets have all the fun? Tiny PC maker CompuLab is bringing NVIDIA’s super low power Tegra 2 chipset to the nettop world. Fit-PC is known for their unconventionally thin form factors, but this might be their thinnest yet.

The Trim-Slice becomes even more interesting following NVIDIA’s announcement that it’s going to start producing true ARM-based CPUs for use in netbooks, notebooks and desktops, as well as Microsoft’s big CES news that Windows 8 would be running on ARM-based CPUs.

The sleek, all-metal Trim-Slice is designed to be used for media player or IPTV systems, though the upcoming CPU wars could make it an affordable replacement for the nettop as well.

While exciting, CompuLab has yet to release any word on pricing or availability.
