"CompuLabs is touting the Fit-PC2 as the smallest, lowest-power "nettop" yet. Intel coined the term "nettop" a year ago, almost to the day, when it unveiled the "Atom" branding around its low-power Intel Architecture chip family. The family includes Z-series ("Menlow") chips for mobile devices, along with N-series and x30-series CPUs ("Diamondville") respectively targeting netbooks and nettops.
