All available mini PCs today come without keyboard and display.. putting buyers to extra expense and defeating the claims of portability. That may change come September, when a new design crowd-funded at Indiegogo, is set to reach the hands of early investors.
It is called Mi Mini PC and is being made by a Hong Kong developer. It claims to be the first truly pocketable PC, with a 5-inch LCD screen, 128GB of solid state storage 8GB RAM and running on an Intel Celeron processor. Usefully, the device can be booted with either Windows 10 or Android 7.
A foldable keyboard is provided free with a power adapter if you don’t want to run it in the built-in batteries. The price to early investors is the equivalent of Rs 10,000 — but many in the tech media are skeptical if such a system can be delivered at this price. We have to wait and see.
