Posted in VIA by Shane McGlaun on April 20th, 2010

There are many instances when computer users want a very small desktop. You don’t always need lots of power for some uses, but cramped space is often a concern on desktops and in entertainment centers.

VIA has pulled the wraps off a new SFF Pc called the VIA ARTiGO A1100. The small machine measures a scant 5.7″ x 3.9″ x 2″ for a total space of 44.46 cubic inches. That tiny machine is not much bigger than your average cell phone.

Yes HTPCs are getting smaller and smaller. One day soon they will be the size of a flash drive, with flash drives being the size of a pebble. This crazy small PC has a Via EPIA-P820 Pico-ITX motherboard inside, and Via’s AMOS-3001 is the first PC to use it. It has COM ports and two USB ports on the front, and Ethernet, USB, and HDMI ports in back. It measures just 6 inches wide.

The 1.2GHz all-in-one VIA VX855 Media System Processor plays 1080p video as well. And yes the design is fanless, which keeps things silent. No pricing info just yet, but we should know more soon.

Still, some users want the full 1080p monty and VIA has announced a new media processor that can deliver.
