Do you enjoy working inside an Android ecosystem, but you crave for desktop features such as taskbars, multiple windows or multitasking? Based on the modern RemixOS, Remix Mini can be called the first true Android PC. Everywhere there are people spending way more than necessary on personal computers; paying $2000 for a mail checking, youtube music playing machine is not quite of a deal when you get to think about all the power left unused, and more, how you could’ve spent those extra money. Developers of Remix Mini worked to stay behind their motto: “less is more”.
On the outside, the main futuristic element of the Remix Mini represents the capacitive touch power button. You don’t have to blindly check the back of the chassis for a power button in order to start this Android computer; instead, tap gently on top of the chassis and it will come to life. On the inside, Remix Mini features a 1.2 GHz quad-core Cortex A53 CPU unit, 8 or 16 GB of eMMC storage and 1 or 2 GB of RAM. On the back, you can find two USB 2.0 ports, an HDMI 1.4 port, as well as Ethernet and Headphone port. Apart from the physical connectivity options, Remix Mini can also stream data through integrated Wi-Fi or Bluetooth 4.0.
Remix Mini provides enhancement on power consumption as well. While a typical computer may use between 65 and 250W of energy, this mini Android PC is providing roughly the same performance as a desktop computer but for the cost of only 10W. This can be achieved thanks to the Remix OS, which, built on the architecture of Android 5.0 Lollipop, has been optimized to save power and be effective in any work or hobby environment.
