Get Fit with the World’s Greenest PC
Getting into shape after the holiday season is a time-honoured tradition – but could being larger than we might like and consuming more than is necessary be a problem for our PC hardware too? Well quite possibly if the latest product in the award-winning fit-PC range of ultra-miniature computers is anything to go by.
Measuring just 160mm x 160mm x 25mm – or to put it another way the width of an A5 envelope and the height of that chocolate bar you’re not allowed to eat until the end of January – fit-PC3 saves space while reducing energy use and running costs (power consumption is down to just 7W at idle - that’s 10% of a desktop equivalent). And, because there’s no fan, it’s totally silent.
What’s more, taking advantage of these size and energy savings – not to mention doing your bit for the environment – doesn’t mean compromising on performance or connectivity. Inside the sleek, tough, die-cast aluminium chassis there’s an AMD G Fusion processor, up to 8GB of DDR3-1333 memory and advanced Radeon HD graphics processors. Extensive connectivity includes dual-head display HDMI and DisplayPort interfaces, Gigabit Ethernet, 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, USB 3.0, USB 2.0, eSATA, PCIe and RS232.
And unlike those gym memberships or personal trainers, getting your PC hardware into shape doesn’t have to cost the earth – you can get hold of a fit-PC3 for under £300!
