Ultra-compact mini PC
Performance that rivals desktop and mobile computers, but fits in your hand.
Stealth Computer, a manufacturer of industrial computers and peripherals, has released its new model LPC-100, its smallest form factor mini PC to date. The company says this small package measures 102 x 155 x 37 mm (4.0 x 6.1 x 1.45 in.), about the size of a paperback book, but outperforms many other small PCs thanks to its Intel Core 2 Duo mobile processors
The LPC-100 is available with a standard Intel Dual Core Celeron T3100 (1.9 GHz) or optional Intel Core 2 Duo processors P8400 (2.26 GHz) or T9400 (2.53 GHz). Stealth says the design uses the Intel Mobile GM45 Express chipset featuring Intel's graphic media accelerator with superior 3D graphics performance.
"The Stealth model LPC-100 offers more processing power per square inch than any of the small form factor computers we have built to date. This full featured machine utilizes the latest Intel Core 2 Duo mobile processor technology outperforming most of today's desktop and mobile PCs and it does so in a fraction of the space," says Ed Boutilier, CEO of Stealth.
The LPC-100 features built-in connectivity options, including Gigabit LAN, three USB, two serial, one DVI-I video, audio in/out, and two PS/2 ports. It supports up to 4 GB of DDR3 memory and has a built-in 2.5 in. mobile hard drive with up to 500 GB of storage space for archived data. For applications that require extra high shock, vibration and wide temperature ranges an optional solid-state hard drive is available.

Annual Salary Survey
In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.
Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
