Over the last few years, there has been a number of ultra-small x86 PCs such as Apple Mini, Intel NUC, and Mintbox Mini Pro and so on. Those are amazingly portable and efficient enough to help you with your daily computing needs, but you need to connect them with your monitor, keyboard, and mouse to get your work done. What if you need to work on your PC while you’re on a flight or on travel? Addressing this issue, Ockel Computers, a Netherlands-based company has developed a mini PC named Ockel Sirius A.
The smaller, the greater
Ockel Sirius A is a versatile, palm sized mini PC that you can carry in your pocket. You can use it as a complete desktop PC, a gaming device, as well as a control for your smart home devices. Without connecting with any other device such as the monitor, you can have a full desktop experience. However, it comes with HDMI, USB Type-C, LAN, DisplayPort, and 2xUSB3.0 port in case you need to connect for data transfer and sharing.
Ockel Sirius A runs on a 64-bit Windows 10 operating system. Powered by an Intel Atom X7 processor, this mini PC features 4 GB RAM, Intel GPU with 4K support, and a 1920 x 1080px 6 inch full HD display. Its 3000 mAh battery can power the device for 4 hours of video playback. However, you can’t use it as a smartphone as it doesn’t come with a SIM card slot.
The company is currently running a fundraising campaign on Indiegogo for this mini PC and has been able to raise $258,965 from 490 backers. You can pre-order an Ockel Sirius A for $559. The possible shipment for this PC is May 2017.
