Marvell Plug Computer 3.0: the Latest in Plug-and-Play Computing

by


We always heard ridiculous things about the future. In fact, I’m sure that I’ve heard that in the future, computers will be as small as a power plug. Well that’s actually partly true. Marvell has been producing plug-sized computers for a while. Their latest has just been announced.

Marvell just launched the newest version of its Plug computer, the Plug 3.0. It’s based on the Armada 300 processor, and draws less than 1/10th of the power that a typical PC uses. However, it still manages to run at a 2Ghz processor speed and has WiFi, Bluetooth and a built-in 1.8-inch hard drive. Not too shabby, eh?

The case is a lot nicer looking than the previous editions. It’s been rumored that a few big-name brands are working on upcoming releases on this platform. We’ll see how relevant the Plug Computer 3.0 really is later this year. Still, it looks pretty cute.

    Marvell’s upped the aesthetics on their plug computers; the sheevaplug was an ugly gadget. but I’d rather wait for the Somniloquy to be mass-produced. :D

    I want one to run one with Ubuntu.

    “…and draws less than 1/10th of the power that a typical PC uses…still manages to run at a 2Ghz processor speed and has WiFi, Bluetooth and a built-in 1.8-inch hard drive” WOW!

    Post about the plug computer 3.0 from 1/2011 and now it’s 10/2012 and still it’s not out yet. I guess it’s never going to be out. I was looking forward to this one too. 2 MHz and 1GB RAM with low power would be very nice.
