Shuttle are well-known for their compact PCs, whether sold as cases or barebones systems. Today we’re looking at the latter, as we review the NC01U Mini-PC. This tiny half-litre system can fit your own choice of components, including a ULV Intel processor, DDR3L RAM and a solid state drive, so you can equip it to serve in a number of roles: portable workstation, old-school gaming PC or media machine.
Today we’re taking a look at something rather special – Hannspree’s Micro PC. This tiny HDMI stick packs an Intel Atom quad-core processor, 32GB of flash storage, WiFi, Bluetooth, and even USB and micro SD ports… not bad for a 38 gram dongle. What makes the Micro PC truly crazy though, is its operating system: not Android, not some weird version of Linux, but a full version of Windows 8.1. Let’s see what it’s capable of.
People love really tiny things. There’s something intrinsically satisfying about seeing something small produce something big – whether it’s a dose of truth from a kid or a wall-sized screen from a pico-projector.
The ZBOX EN760 benefits greatly from this phenomenon. It is a small black box that looks like a router – it even has two antennas sticking out of it – but it’s actually a gaming PC. And a media PC you can screw to the back of your HDTV. And yes, even a router, if you want it to be.
In this review, we’ll see what this small black box is truly capable of, as it challenges machines many times its size and price in [...]
Hawker of graphics cards and the occasional motherboard, Sapphire, has announced the release of a new variant in its Edge range – this one being the third, is called Edge 3.
Featuring an accelerated processing unit (APU), the Edge is no bigger than past versions, offering up a full PC experience in about the size of a small book. Having tested previous versions I can atest to the minimal nature of the Edge systems and their surprisingly impressive performance considering the size. This latest version should be improved even more so though.
Combined with the AMD E450 APU, you get 4GB of DDR3, a 320GB hard drive, native wireless connectivity, ethernet adapter, twin [...]
Today I’m going to be testing Foxconn’s latest AMD Fusion Nettop. This kind of product is right up Foxconn’s street and I am looking forward to seeing how it pans out. Based on the AMD Fusion platform the Nettop is a low power consumption computer with many uses. I will be finding out whether it’s worth its price and whether it would be usable for day to day use.Specifications
