Desktop Trends: Slim And Small--Part 3 of 3
Small office and home office (SOHO) networking is another way to extend the useful life of your slim and small PC. If you're on a network, you can use one of these less powerful systems as a file or print server. Some of the small-footprint systems feature integrated Ethernet adapters, so you can take advantage of these in an office environment. At home, you can go with a USB networking solution or even a card-based networking kit if you have an open card slot in your slim system.

In a SOHO network, you can even share an Internet connection. Thus a fast PC on your network can act as the Internet gateway, while your over-the-hill small-footprint PC can act as a browsing station.
