The LPC-480 mini-PC comes with an impressive range of features including a quad-core Ivy Bridge i7 processor and support for up to 16 GB of RAM.

Stealth Computer's new LPC-480 mini-PC measures just 146 x 250 x 42 millimeters and is powered by a 3.3 GHz Intel Core i7-3610QE processor paired with an integrated Intel HD 4000 graphics card.

For users seeking a less powerful and more affordable CPU, the i7-3610QE can be downgraded to a 1.9 GHz Intel Celeron B840 with on-board Intel HD 3000 graphics.

The mini-PC ships with 4 GB of SODIMM memory with support for a maximum of 16 GB of memory. It will be offered with a variety of storage configurations, including 128 GB, 256 GB and 512 GB SSDs, in addition to 500 GB and 1 TB mechanical hard drives.

The LPC-480 offers a wide range of connectivity options with an optical drive, HD audio and four USB 3.0 ports mounted on the front panel. The back panel features power, VGA, DVI, Gigabit LAN and two PS/2, COM and USB 3.0 connectors.





The Stealth LPC-480 has a starting price of $1,820 with a one year manufacturer warranty and will be available with a choice of operating systems, such as Windows XP / 7 / 8, Ubuntu and Windows Server 2008 R2.

    Nice, but the starting price should be under U$1,000.

    Who on earth would shell out almost $2k for one of these?

    Can it run Crysis 3? I'm guessing not. On-board graphics?

    I think I'd rather build a bigger PC, with PCI/PCI-E cards installed, rather than having a bunch of USB devices hang from it.

    This would make one heck of an htpc, Except for one huge drawback. Who in their right mind would spend that much cash on a lower powered system like this when you could build your own powerhouse with a huge variety of great small cases and fantastic hardware that's on the market now.

    A BGA GT3 Haswell or Kabini will work much better in one of these when they are released.
    And like others said, adjust the price.

    April fools for the price anyone? :-) plus a serial port? Is for consumer or industrial applications?

    Seems for industrial use, given its price and legacy ports.

    Definitely not a home PC.

    Well, it's not on-board anymore (it's on-die/chip), so i guess we'll have to stop using the phrase.

    "Integrated" still makes sense, though.

    And i must say, pretty big step down from an i7 to a Celeron!

    TG for the DVI and VGA connections, I dont know what I would do without that functionality.

    2002 and 1987 called and they want their video standards back.

    $1,820 and no HDMI, sounds like a pretty good HTPC to me.

    No doubt it takes some careful engineering to keep an i7 cool in that package, but for $1800 i could buy two shuttle XPC units with i5 CPUs and HD3000 graphics, PLUS a pair of really nice monitors.

    I didn't know Intel HD 4000 was a dedicated GPU...
    FYI Tarun, like ojas pointed out, its an IGP.
    Starting price is $1820? So stealth-PC is selling a $250 celeron-4gb ram-500gb hdd-IGP HTPC for $1820? I understand you gotta make a profit, but this sounds more like a bad april fools joke.

    If only it had GTX680MX inside, then the price would be just about fine.

    you could build twice the computer for half the price in a shorter case

    Seems like an ideal candidate for automotive applications.

    i thought this was a cool combo slim dvd drive and i/o panel which is something i would be interested in then i remembered what i clicked on. also why call HD 4000 a graphics "card" kinda misleading don't ya think?

    This is for industral use, I would to work for company that sold retail computer equipment and most sytem would cost 3-4x as much as a "personal" version. You have to consider the fact that size is very import in business so if a store has a Kisok or even register system etc, the smaller foot print can save them money in the long run. The fact this can easlly be hidden as well works for a business so they can keep a certain apperance to there customers.

    NO. NO. NO.

    This is NOT for industrial use. (Headphone jack, 4xUSB3 and microphone). Industrial PC's don't usually have many outputs (often no graphics either).

    This product makes NO SENSE and is marketed to people with more cash than brains.

    If you really want a small, quiet PC get a Mac Mini and add Windows or Linux instead or as dual-boot if OSX isn't your thing.
