Via lets loose tiny Artigo PC kit

Taiwanese chip company Via has announced something it calls the Artigo A1150, which is a dual core DIY PC kit aimed at the enthusiast market, for desktops.

Essentially it is a very small full-feature PC kit. As demonstrated by this hand, plate, and Artigo:

As you can see, the dimensions are rather small. That’s no giant’s hand up there.

It’s 5.7″ x 3.9″ x 2″ and has a dual core Via Eden X2 processor under its very small bonnet. More Via stuff within: there’s also a VX900H media system processor, which is an all in one chipset for, well, media, especially high definition etc. 

Then there’s HDMI and VGA ports, a Gigabit Ethernet port, five USB ports and an SD card reader. 

You can watch some more size comparisons in this charming video with Mike from Via below. In it, there is a kitten, and also some cupcakes surrounding the not quite as cute but still tiny Artigo 1150.
