At just 6.5 inches wide, 6.5 inches deep and less than 2 inches tall (roughly the size of a large hardback), enano Computers’ new wireless processors are sleek, ergonomic, and take up 40 percent less space than the average desktop computer (you can even fasten the enano, its keyboard and a wireless mouse into a mounting bracket behind the monitor until you’re ready to use them).
They’re also incredibly energy efficient, using more than 75 percent less power and generating one quarter the amount of heat. And since they’re portable, enanos can serve as everything from your glove compartment GPS system (just hook it up to a car LCD screen and download mapping software) to your party-ready MP3 player. It seems good things — and now green things — really do come in small packages.
