Imagine a small and lightweight desktop computer that roughly has the size of a tiny network router, that’s gotta be something right? Well Quanmax has just recently achieved that with their latest QBOX Mini 1000 Series! Two fanless smaller-than-the-average computers with a 1 GHz core processor (Intel Atom E640T) operating it. Resized at approximately 130.11 x 83.06 y 19.2 mm it is just slightly bigger than a 2.5-inch external hard drive device even though Quanmax will have yet to challenge themselves in creating a USB flashdrive computer in about several decades from now.
Space is not a very rich commodity in this device although it features a rich USB port so that you can just plug in other devices into it. It also has a 3.5mm VGA or HDMI jack output for externally mounted display, a dual input/output audio port and a DC-fed power input just like a laptop computer. The power and reset buttons can be instantly accessed from the top panel.
It also has 2 more USP ports inside as well as a mPCIe slot in case you need to add other modules onto it such as the WiFi module for example. The system memory is up to 1GB and you can just use an external HDD to supplant its mass storage via the externally mounted mSATA.
You can perform on it pretty much the same stuff that you do on your common desktop PC, laptop or tablet. In fact there’s almost no distinction between the QBOX Mini 1000 Series and say a MSI/Intel Core 2 Duo PC when it comes to accessing emails, surfing the net or running some MS Office applications. Watching videos, images, playing music and downloading stuff is just as good with the exception of course of not being able to play high-end games like Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 on it. Other than that this mini PC packs a pretty powerful punch as oppose to your ordinary household computer.
