Stealth brings in expensive mini-PC

Written by Nick Farrell



Cheap and cheerful is for other PC's


Stealth has released its LPC-680 LittlePC which is a mini PC using Intel's second generation Core i-Series processors.

While the machine wins points for being very small, measuring 6.5 x 6-inches and less than 2-inches in height, it loses a lot of points for costing $1,495 USD. Ed Boutilier CEO of Stealth.com said that the Stealth Model: LPC-680 is the most powerful and advanced small form PC he has ever offered.

It uses the new second generation Sandy Bridge Intel Core i7/i5/i3 mobile processor family and is supposed to compete with more heavy duty PCs. It is also its first small PC with USB 3.0 connectivity. The machine has two USB 3.0 ports, two USB 2.0 ports, one DVI-I port, one DisplayPort, one Gigabit LAN port, optional Wi-Fi 802.11n, an optional RS232 Serial port and optional Line In/Out Audio ports. It also supports up to 8 GB of DDR3 memory, and up to 750 GB of storage via a built-in 2.5-inch HDD.

The base model sports Intel's Celeron B710 clocked at 1.6 GHz which is very slow. However other  CPU options include the Core i3-2330M (2.2 GHz) for an extra $235 a the Core i5-2540M (2.6 GHz) for an extra $299; and the Core i7-2620M (2.7 GHz) for an extra $420. You can also have a Blu-ray burner, or move the internal storage up to the next level using an SSD (the 480 GB model is an added $925 to the base cost). For that sort of money we can't see why you would bother as there are other mini-PCs around which are better value for money.
