CompuLab Comes Out With New Rugged, Fanless Linux-Friendly PC

Written by Michael Larabel in Hardware on 3 July 2016 at 09:39 AM EDT. 18 Comments
The folks at CompuLab have announced their latest Linux-friendly PC, the fitlet-RM. The Fitlet-RM is described as "the smallest PC for extreme conditions" and is fanless.

The Fitlet-RM is the successor to the previously-reviewed Fitlet we tested last year. The Fitlet-RM is said to improve heat dissipation by 40% through a redesign of the all-metal housing. The new design is also said to be more rugged, and support a wider temperature range.

The Fitlet-RM temperature range is said to be -40C to 70C and is backed by CompuLab with a five year warranty. The Fitlet-RM is still designed around the AMD A10 Micro-6700T with Radeon R6 Graphics, up to 8GB RAM, and mSATA/microSD storage.

More details on the new Fitlet-RM can be found via their announcement. CompuLab will be sending over one of their new housings for testing at Phoronix.
