Chip PC’s 3 Watt Green Palm Sized Desktop Computer

October 11, 2011 Leave a comment

From Raspberry Pi to Chip PC, we look into yet another tiny PC of the size of an adult person’s palm. Chip PC’s selling point is not just its sheer compact size but more so its green design. Chip PC offers the world’s lowest power consumption desktop models, with an average power consumption of 3.5W at full working mode. This figure makes 40 Chip PCs running at maximum power for example AutoCAD equivalent to a typical desktop running at average power consumption of 150W. Chip PC thin clients are  the world’s lowest energy consumption computers by far.

The downside is price. The Chip PC costs around US$150 to US$350 depending on the model. There are currently four models as shown in the image below.
