AMD's Mullins mobile APU may not be showing up in many tablets, but we are seeing it crop up in some enticing mini-PCs. Zotac demoed just such a system at CES last week, and now, the folks at CompuLab have introduced another.
Dubbed fitlet, the CompuLab system packs an impressive array of hardware into its passively cooled 4.3" x 3.3" x 0.9" chassis. The fitlet-i variant features a A4-6400T processor with Radeon R3 integrated graphics, room for up to 8GB of DDR3 RAM, mSATA and mini-PCIe slots, and a Micro SD card slot. Connectivity spans dual HDMI 1.4a outputs, dual Intel Gigabit Ethernet, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, and USB 3.0. Phew.
And that's not all. CompuLab has also announced a cheaper fitlet-B version, which will have a slower Mullins chip (the E1-6200T) and more limited expansion. Then there's the fitlet-X, which will be aimed at industrial applications and have four GigE controllers and a "FACET" mini-PCIe card that will provide even more connectivity.
CompuLab says it expects to start taking orders in February. Prices will start at just $129 for the fitlet-B, which isn't a bad deal—although, since these systems are all barebones, you'll have to add your own memory and SSD. Warranty coverage will be a generous five years across the board.
