Israeli company makes fanless Micro PC offers us a look at Compulab's "fit-PC":

Tiny PC sips power, runs Linux
[...] Because of its silent, low-power characteristics, the fit-PC is virtually maintenance free and ideal for 24/7 "install and forget" applications in the home, office, or classroom, Compulab said. The unit easily mounts to the wall, the underside of a desk, or the back of a flat-screen monitor. Its black anodized aluminum case serves as a heat sink, eliminating the need for a noisy fan.

Compulab lists the following additional features and specifications for the fit-PC:
  • 40 GB hard drive
  • Dual 100 Mbps Ethernet
  • SXGA graphics controller, resolution to 1920 x 1440
  • 2 USB 2.0 high speed ports
  • Audio in/out interfaces
  • RS-232 serial port
  • Single 5V power supply
  • Dimensions -- 4.7 x 4.6 x 1.6 inches (120 x 116 x 40 mm)
  • Although the fit-PC comes with Linux pre-installed, Windows XP is "easily installable" via a USB CD-ROM drive, Compulab said. [...]

    It costs $285 (plus $30 shipping and handling for U.S. buyers) and can be ordered from their website, which also has more information about the units:
