VeryPC recently acheived an ICT Reviews Recommended status for our new Nano Silent mini PC from the PC Pro sister publication. They said lots of nice things about our tiny fanless Intel® Core™ i3/i5 VESA mountable PC like:

Nano Silent has an anodised aluminium chassis which means we can laser etch your branding onto it, or make custom metal badges if you prefer.
Thanks for reading folks!
Yaaay! Congrats guys and gals.
I have a couple of questions.
How does it dissipate heat without the fans? I know you can have heatsinks etc, but surely they'd get hot as well.
This is just an semi-educated guess but it looks to me that the entire box is designed to be a radiator. They must use low power mobile chips and some kind of heatpipe system to distribute the heat.
▲ @nephilim Heatsink to conduct heat away from CPU coupled with chassis fins to radiate away excess heat. Naturally the chassis temperature will increase slightly, but good heat management coupled with an ultra energy efficient CPU means silent fanless computing at very comfortable operating temperatures. See this helpful diagram! ▼
EDIT - Yes @Norphy yes! You are a stone cold educated guessing genius my friend.

Does that mean that there is a recommended way to mount the chassis? It looks like it would work better on its base than on its side or mounted to a monitor. Do you need to make sure there is good airflow around where it is, do you have recommendations about the space required around it?

I've mounted ours to the wall - it hasn't suffered any heat problems yet...
I've had to stick some blutack over the blue power LED though as it is so bright it lights up the wall!
Oh and it has Wifi. You can add it, its an extra in the VeryPC shop.
PM me if you want to ask any questions about it.
