"CompuLabs is touting the Fit-PC2 as the smallest, lowest-power
"nettop" yet. Intel coined the term "nettop" a year ago, almost to

("Menlow") chips for mobile devices, along with N-series and
x30-series CPUs ("Diamondville") respectively targeting netbooks
"Since then, the market has readily embraced netbooks.
Meanwhile, only a few nettops have appeared (the Asus EEE Box and
Shuttle X27 come to mind). Atom x30-series chips, therefore, seem
to be getting more traction in thin clients (such as Dell's
Optiplex FX160) than in nettops."
