    Phoronix: CompuLab IPC3, Testing 10 Mini PCs / Small Form Factor Linux PCs

    The IPC3 is CompuLab's latest-generation Intense-PC. It may look similar to past IPC models, but is now equipped with the latest generation Intel Core CPUs while remaining fan-less and within an all-metal housing that's extremely durable.

    I wonder what that SIM/smartcard slot inside the IPC3 is for.

    Update: from reading the site, it seems like there's mobile data support! This thing would me be a cool edge router with OpenBSD, for the mobile network backup.

            I bought an Airtop-PC in part on the strength of your earlier articles. It's a SWEET desktop for someone who does a modest amount of Adobe work. It handles vMix live video production software with ease. I added a mPCIe USB 3.1C interface, breaking the port out to the front panel. I wish that the optional USB 3.0 FACE module worked in the Airtop. It adds another mPCIe slot as well as 2 front USB 3 ports, but it only works in the IPCs.

                Heh, as long as the minipcie slot has usb lines too (most modems are using usb, not pcie because of obvious reasons), you can use a flex-cable adapter like this https://techship.com/products/sim-ca...press-modules/
                to add the sim slot.
                The contact part must be wrapped around the smaller part of the minipcie connector, as it needs to pipe the SIM electrical connection into that part, and you're good to go.

                For the average "minipcie" (actually USB) modem card you can also use "usb to minipcie" (actually still providing just USB lines + power) adapters with sim card slot like these (or a random chinese clone) http://eshop.sintech.cn/mini-pcie-3g...-s-p-1030.html

                And then you can add a half-serious modem to whatever has a usb port.

                  Nice comparison; I'm planning to order a NUC tomorrow, so that's timed real well! It confirms that there's a huge difference between the Atom SoCs and the Core series, but after that there is little difference, and so for office work an i3 is pretty much ideal.

                    Out of curiosity, what NUC are you planning on ordering?
