The mini PC market seems to be enjoying fame and worldwide attention. As the latest addition to the list of small form factor computers, the AMD LiveBox Mini PC uses up very little space on your desk or in an entertainment center while delivering netbook-like performance.
The LiveBox has two AC outlet prongs which make it possible for direct outlet plugging. It’s powered by a dual core processor of 1GHz AMD C-60 with graphics of integrated Radeon HD 6200 and a RAM of 1GB. The AMD chip somewhat resembles the Intel Atom processors used in netbooks. It has a Samsung-manufactured SSD of 64GB for storage.
Around the edges, you will find an HDMI socket, a Gigabit Ethernet jack, and two USB 2.0 ports. It also sports Bluetooth 4.0, a SIM slot for quad-band 3G, and a memory card reader.
Though the LiveBox is small and compact, its features are enough to support a smooth 1080p video. It’s also capable of supporting basic operations such as YouTube, web surfing, and email.
However, it has some drawbacks which are worth mentioning. The LiveBox runs on Windows 7 instead of Windows 8. There’s also no sign of the USB 3.0 port.
Businesses, schools, and other space-saving concerned establishments may find the AMD LiveBox Mini PC very indispensable. They just have to keep their eyes and ears open for the announcement on the product’s price and availability.
