Windows 7: Tiny Cube Might Be Your Next PC

For normal folks, all that power saving stuff doesn't generally make a huge difference. For an office with 400 computers it adds up to some serious money.

I'm certainly not making a case that it's a viable replacement for a "real" computer, but I could see where it would have its niche uses.

Windows 7 Ult, Windows 8.1 Pro,
 
 

They have had those little box computers for years. They don't have anywhere close to the power of a basic PC.

By the way I can build a basic dual core PC with 8GB memory for under 500 bucks minus the screen, keyboard or mouse.

Portable, already Wifi enabled, plenty of processing power, 64 GB available on micro HD card so enough to load any version of Windows / Android or whatever. Sound card already enabled etc etc.

I'm surprised this actually happened already.

Now this would be a portable and robust system and a lot cheaper too.

This actually makes sense.

I can imagine a smartphone running something like Windows 8/9, which can be plugged into a dock for access to faster components and a bigger screen.

This..heh...

I cant see this at all going "big"...
I mean you have smartphones etc now..

also you could make something close to this FOR A L O T less..you could make a really good PC for the price of this thing.

I agree that it is tiny and will fit most "anywhere"

This would have to be more powerful than a smart phone..which It's not.
This would have to be more powerful than the cheapest FULL PC with basic needs etc.

I would rather go on ebay and buy a Laptop with a 75GB HD and 8GB of RaM for 200 bucks.

I do see this coming in the near future..well the insanley small computer part...but all in all the price needs to drop..the memory needs to be upgraded..I mean this thing is pretty much..where it sits..a portable internet browser that you can hook a monitor and keyboard into..

Scale 1 - 10

I'd give it a 6
Mainly for the concept etc.

I'd like to see something of this kind in about another 5 years or so..it'd probably be a lot cheaper and a lot more like a "portable PC" other than a "portable web browser"
