Military-grade hardware: the Stinger 553 SFF PC


Have you got a dusty, vibration-filled, humid place that you desperately need to put a PC in? Me too! That’s why I’m going to be buying the Stinger 553 SFF PC, from CodaOctopus Colmek. It’s based around an Intel Atom processor, and packs 2GB of RAM, a 128GB SSD and eight USB ports.

I doubt it’ll cope with Far Cry 2, despite probably being able to survive all the stresses of the game if it were reality. It conforms to MIL-STD-810F and MIL-STD-461E environmental standards and MIL-STD0704E power supply voltage standards, whatever that means, and measures just 5″ x 5″ x 3″, so it’s a tiny wee thing. No price, heh, but with an aluminium alloy chassis, I doubt this thing will be cheap.
