Compulab’s answer to the plethora of USB computers that you’ve seen posted everywhere is this cell phone sized little box, which houses 4GB of RAM and can contain a hard drive with up to 512GB plus a microSD card with up to 128GB of storage. Compulab is an Israeli computer parts maker. CompuLab has packed a lot of I/O capabilities into a tiny, elegant-looking box, including two Gigabit Ethernet ports, Bluetooth 3.0, Wi-Fi b/g/n, four USB 2.0 ports, stereo line-in and line-out, and HDMI and DVI-D ports for your display. Its draws just 3 watts to 8 watts of power. In short, this is pretty much everything you’d need in a desktop computer in a space about one third the size of its keyboard.

Glad to see so many choices for back-up computers these days!
