Compulab has just released their new ultra-compact, ultra-portable Trim-Slice desktop computer, packed with features and available to ship. It runs on a trickle of power (less than 3w) that powers a dual core NVIDIA Tegra 2 CPU and 1 Gb RAM, as well as a 32 Gb SSD, 4 USB ports, Bluetooth, Ethernet, dual 1080p HDMI ports, and an SD card slot—all packed into a tasteful metal case that is only .6” thick. Its three models range from a barebones version priced around $200 (that lacks some of the above features) to a decked out $320 Pro model.
While the hardware seems to have mass-appeal, the software is a work in progress. Trim-Slice was designed to entice software developers to make the most of this device, so Trim-Slice is encouraging the general consumer to hold off until the software matures into a more accessible version. What would you use a Trim-Slice for? Use applications could include media computers or one of the smallest car PC’s on the market.

Before I built my 1st carputer I was running the ScanGauge II in a couple of my vehicles and I still use it to scan vehicles for friends and customers. I must say it is one of the best investments I ever made and the value far exceeds the cost. You are also able to manually program in specific PIDs for different make and models with the available info from off their website. If the supplied cable is not long enough all you have to do is get a straight through RJ-45 cable extension coupler and whatever length straight through Ethernet cable you need, which is what I did. Screen colors can be changed to predefined colors or make you'r own by combining various amounts of red, green and blue.
