Adjective/noun to describe a small but extremely useful thing

I’m looking for an adjective/noun for a thing (e.g computer) that is small/not fully functional compared with other, similar such things, but whose performance is extremely advanced.

[Updates]

My English may not be good enough to express my idea, but I find @sameyeam’s is the best fit for my unclear question.

“Pared down and streamlined, the thing’s great performance has been unleashed by shedding features you don’t need.”

Also helpful:

Streamlined emphasizes efficiency and ease of use more than specific but powerful functionality.

I’m still looking for an noun to describe it. Peppy may be a fit, but I need more suggestions.

Answer

How about “streamlined?” As in, “Pared down and streamlined, the thing’s great performance has been unleashed by shedding features you don’t need.”
