Stealth Brings Out Silent Fanless Mini PC

Looking for something small and rugged to run your favorite Windows apps? Look no further than Stealth Computer's new LPC-630F, a high performance fanless small form computer packed with a third generation Core i7 mobile processor. There are also no cooling fans, making it ideal in the home office, studio or business environments.

According to the company, its line of fanless computers feature a rugged extruded aluminum chassis performing as a heat sink. The overall size is rather compact, measuring 7.9 x 7.9 x 2.56 inches, a great solution for "space challenged" scenarios.

Why go fanless? For one, there's no noise. Customers also aren't required to babysit intake and exhaust fans, which can lead to dead components when not maintained. There's also less power consumption, meaning more money in your pocket at the end of the day.

The specs show that this new compact PC has an Intel Core i7-3520M processor, Intel HD 4000 graphics, 4 GB of DDR3 memory (8 GB, 16 GB are options), and 128 GB of SSD-based storage (up to 512 GB). There are also two empty mini-PCIe expansion options: one that's full-sized and one that's half-sized.

The new mini-PC also provides two USB 2.0 ports on the front. Two additional USB 2.0 ports are provided on the back as well as two USB 3.0 ports, two DisplayPort jacks, a DVI-I video port, an e-SATA port, audio output and more. For customers who choose the optional Wireless N networking card, the antenna will also appear on the rear panel.

"Systems are compatible with Microsoft Windows 7, 8, XP, Embedded and Linux and can be custom configured to meet the exact needs of the OEM or end user," reads the company's announcement.

The LPC-630F is currently shipping with base pricing starting at $2190 USD.  The rugged, compact PC can be configured here.

    At a 2 grand price point, I don't think so...

    I was actually pretty excited about this until the price...

    Reminds me of the DEX7150 from aopen, but I could be smoking.

    "I was actually pretty excited about this until the price" Exactly. For ~500$ its an excellent little machine. For 1k$ its only for those who really don't have space, for 2k$ its for the computer illiterate.
  • $2200 for a PC with mobile CPU, no discrete GPU, only 4 GB of RAM (in 2014!?) and only 128 GB of storage? Is this some kind of a joke?
  • JackDiesel
    You can build your own fanless mini-itx PC for half that price.
  • zipspyder
    Talk about markup price...yikes!
  • detrohutt
    Must cost about $1000 to make it "rugged".
  • K2N hater
    Though heatpipe cases are a bit hard to find I can see a desktop APU would smoke that mobile i7 for like... 1/3 of the cost.

    This was made for where you need a computer to work 24/7 365 and not have to worry about it. $2000 is a small price instead of having to buy a new computer every six months because your work environment killed it.
