I’m a big fan of small computers, as is anyone who has tried to lug a full sized rig anywhere with them or a heavy gaming laptop. The Linux crowd has come up with the smallest PC around in the form of a USB stick.

The entire rig measures in at only 1.4” x 3.3” and as you can imagine it lacks the gear normally assumed to go with a computer like optical drives for one. The CPU is meek at 190MHz.

RAM is 64MB of SDRAM and 256MB of NAND flash is used for storage. The entire rig gets powered by a USB port, which brings one small issue to light. You need access to a real PC with a USB port to run this wee PC. via Sci Fi Tech
