Habey has introduced a new, fanless embedded system, the BIS-6621. It is an ultracompact PC that measures just 5 x 5.25 x 2 inches. It comes with either an Atom D2800 or D2550 CPU.
Regarding storage, the BIS-6621 is generously flexible for a small form factor PC. It has both an mSATA (that can also be used as a mini PCIe slot), and has room for virtually any 2.5" hard drive or SSD. The unit also packs three USB 2.0 ports, along with a com port, Gbit Ethernet, a VGA port, and an HDMI port. Analog stereo output and microphone-in ports are also part of the package.
What's really interesting is the externally accessible SIM card slot, allowing users to use their SIM cards to connect to 3G networks for data. Moreover, the unit has an infrared receiver, allowing users to employ generic remotes and use the device as a media center or in-car entertainment system. It also comes with a VESA mounting system, which will allow users to mount the device behind monitors or on walls.
So far there is no word on pricing or availability.

It is supposed to be a Atom processor and not an Arom processor?Reply
No built in WiFi?Reply
I've been very happy with my Arom processor Irtel did a really great job on it and the Iry bridge chips too.Reply

I recall trying to play a Flash game on an Atom laptop.
It lagged. Hard.

I hate having to point out jokes. Bonus points for the 3 thumbs down.
Better do not make any funny comments regarding typos; it can get you into hot water with the censors ! :-)Reply
I would like if they found a way to place a more poweful CPU and actively cool it with a fan that is the top of the case. My case is open and my fans barely make a noticeable noise. As long as the fan is not running in hurricane mode, noise should not be much of an issue. That being said, I don't know the challenges involved in trying out such a system.Reply
