Nowadays people are pursuing the smaller and smarter features in all most all portable devices, and on some aspects, their need are successfully satisfied while the others are not. They use smart phones with a thinner frame and smaller size (or larger screen) and computers in more light and small appearance. Actually, now smart phones are used as computers as they has the function which allow people to surf the net with the phone. Now to meet the requirement of people who want to access the Internet via HDTV: mini PC, with miniature volume which has the shape and size of a USB drive disk and use mobile platform for data exchange.
These kind of pint-size PCs are amazingly tiny, incredibly inexpensive, and eminently customizable and avoid the power-hungry x86 processors found in desktop and laptop PCs in favor of mobile CPUs and GPUs, but each relies on an external monitor or HDTV—connected via HDMI—to display its user interface and other video output. Among them some mini PCs are extremely tiny and can be connected to the display with USB port.
There are various of mini PCs in the market and some of you may interest in this tiny and versatile computer, here is a brief introduction of an outstanding mini PC for example.
Although this kind of PC is cheap and affordable for most people, but you need to do some preparation to render them completely functional, don’t worry this would not takes much money and time and it is within the range of bearable things.
One of the outstanding mini PCs is MK802 II which is Android based computer manufactured by Chinese company. It has the size and appearance very much like a USB drive disk, and with a 1GB RAM and 4GB storage and A10 Cortex-A8 CPU. About the operating system, it is equipped with Android 4.0.
The release of such PC with mini size gives us a hope that someday in the future we may have the chance to access maybe USB sized computer with full function and features the same with computers we use today. We cannot deny that there are still some limitations in the using of mini PCs today, while this is the tendency and direction for the development of future computer.
When you are enjoying the convenience brought by the newest technology you should not neglect issues related to data security in computers. Folder encryption methods are wildly used in today’s “normal” PCs, we hope in the future the similar theory can be applied to protect data security in the mini PCs.
One thing for sure is that, mini PCs are resemble the ordinary USB drive disks, and technical workers may get inspiration from the way to lock USB drives and secure people’s sensitive data in mini PC.
